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.

President's Message

August is here! It’s so much fun to see all the back-to-school photos of the kiddos. I feel like I should post a photo of me and my years working while I sit at my desk, starting to work on budgets...send help (or Tito’s—ha!). I am still shocked that it’s time for our Business Meeting and we will be traveling to LCAM next month!    Seriously—where has this year gone?

As I start to reflect on this year, I’m so excited to see where the Chapter is today. We have come together after the pandemic and have so many new faces with us now. We are so happy to have all our new members in our Chapter. Chandra Sutherland did such a great job navigating us through the pandemic and we wouldn’t be here today without her dedication and leadership! I’m so thankful I was able to serve beside her to prepare me for my Presidential year. We talked about many things and planned while being roomies at LCAM. I’m excited for Kathy and I to share that same experience.

The love in this group is like no other. This is a true sisterhood that is full of support for one another. The entire board, and Chapter, has been a dream come true and a lifesaver for me. Thank you all so much! You are forever family to me. I feel like I’m writing my goodbye speech and I still have two months…. Let’s turn this thing around!

I am excited to share our plans for next year during our Business Meeting this month. Are you ready for a mini Barnyard Auction? Don’t forget to bring your $1 bills to our August 9th meeting. Let’s get excited because our favorite fundraiser is coming back in 2023! We will also discuss community service opportunities for next year. We have many changes within the board seats which will be shared with you all. I can’t wait to see what next year brings! It’s going to be amazing!

We have a new member orientation on August 9th as well. All are welcome to learn more about EWI and our local chapter. Don’t   forget that we will not have a meeting in September, but mark October 11th on your calendar! This will be the installation of our new board and a History of EWI        Chattanooga presented by Nancy Templeton. I’m so excited for Nancy to share with us as she will start from day 1 of how our Chapter began to where we are today.

It’s a great time to be in EWI of Chattanooga. Help spread the word and let out the best kept secret in Chattanooga! It’s time people join in on our fun! We are just getting started. Big hugs and lots of love to you all!
