Executive Women International® (EWI) addresses the business professional's quest for personal achievement and drive for professional development. EWI is unique among the myriad of associations in that the company, or firm, holds 
the membership, not the individual.

EWI offers many benefits to both the individual representative and the firm. Representatives who participate in EWI have access to a variety of events and programs. Their companies benefit through the professional connections and the recognition received as business leaders locally and internationally.

We focus on Connections, Careers and Community. 

  • Connections  - Promoting member firms and its representatives.  We believe that connecting is about the dynamic evolving relationship linking our Chapters, our administrative team, our members and the larger communities we live and work in.

  • Careers - Enhancing personal and professional development through learning programs and EWI's Academy of Leadership

  • Community - Encouraging involvement by donating time and resources to improve lives through scholarship programs, literacy initiatives and other community programs.

The Chattanooga Chapter meets monthly; typically the second Tuesday evening.

President's Message

Happy early Mother’s Day!  It is such a fun time to celebrate all the amazing mothers.  I read recently an article by Dorothy Peterson and she said, “Being a mother is both demanding and rewarding—it is equivalent to a professional pursuit.  Molding minds, healing spirits, nurturing bodies, and developing potential—this job can be amazingly productive and overwhelmingly rewarding. The results of competent mothering will be passed from generation to generation! For a mother, rearing her children is her mission, life’s work, the opportunity for her greatest legacy.”  How very true are those words! If you are a mother to a child, adopted mother, or a mother to a fur baby, I hope you and yours enjoy the very best day! 

Have you purchased/sold your “Pot of Gold”, “Quilt tickets” or “No Dirty Dishes” fundraising raffle tickets?  Catherine Cox mailed them out, and hopefully you have received yours.  The second drawing for “Pot of Gold” is this month and it is worth $100. Thanks to each of you   for working hard to sell these tickets.  Lastly, we are still looking for items to use for our   online auction this fall. This is the first time we have done an online auction, and we would  like it be a huge success. Any contribution is greatly appreciated! Each of these fundraising efforts should be fun, easy scholarship and operational fundraisers! Please, see Catherine Cox or Nancy Templeton if you have money/tickets to turn in, items to assist in our upcoming online auction, or questions.  

Did you get to attend the Chapter Forum at the Hunter on April 13th?  Charlie Rosenquist and her planning committee did an amazing job! The day was such a fun-filled day focusing on  EWI three C’s: Careers, Connections and Community. The speakers all did an amazing job. It was such a joy to listen to one of our own – Dejuan Jordan. Her message on “Thrive in the Midst of Change” was relevant, as EWI Corporate and our Chattanooga Chapter have been experiencing major change in the last couple of years. I hope you were able to take  advantage of networking with so many amazing women. Thank you to those that attended, and for each of you that worked hard to make it such a success. It did not go unnoticed,   and it is certainly appreciated.

Lastly, please continue to keep our sisters in our EWI Chapter in your prayers.  We have several members that are going through life struggles, health and family challenges.  If you know of a need, please let me or a board member know.  We want to make sure all the chapter’s needs are met, the need is covered on our prayer list, and our prayer warriors are praying for it.   

I look forward to seeing each of you at our monthly chapter meeting on May 14th at the Walden Club. Our guest speaker will be Doug Smith with Covenant Transport. He will be speaking about the power of a presentation – PowerPoint, Visual Aids, etc.  Also, do not forget your raffle table item(s), and your money for the raffle table. It will be an evening of fellowship, friends, and fun! See you there!

Thankful for EWI and each of YOU,


Valerie Lucas, President of EWI
