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

As 2017 comes to an end I would like to thank you for your continued   support of EWI of Chattanooga.  I look forward to leading and supporting   you to promote Connections, Careers and Community.  I hope you have had time with friends and family to celebrate Christmas and the New Year. Please take time to be thankful and to celebrate your accomplishments and the accomplishments of your business.

The New Year encourages us to make resolutions to improve, and it may    also be a good time to set personal and professional goals.  I believe that setting goals can translate into more success.

Our EWI Mission statement states: EWI brings together key individuals from diverse businesses for the purpose of promoting member firms, enhancing personal and professional development and encouraging community involvement. 

One of my goals is to grow the membership of the EWI of Chattanooga Chapter by six new members.  I’ve said it out loud and now it is in print. So, to me, that is a real goal I feel we can accomplish together.  Let’s do it!

We are making progress with the Membership Campaign and hope to have several new member prospects at the January and February meetings.   Please make them feel welcome.  Discuss the benefits you have taken advantage of as a member of EWI and encourage them to become a member.

We have a great program lined up for you at the January meeting.  I look forward to seeing each of you at the meeting January 9, 2018 at The Walden Club.

Monthly Speaker Info

January 9, 2018:
Speaker: First Things First
When: Tuesday, December 12th at 5:30 p.m.
Event: “Work Smart, Live Well” Most CEOs know that a satisfied workforce yields higher productivity. They also know that retaining employees is better and more cost-effective than dealing with turnover issues like recruitment and training. But do they know that many employees are conflicted about the time they spend at work versus with family? When a national survey by the Families and Work Institute asked what factors were very important in taking a job, 60 percent of respondents cited “effect on personal/family life.” Yet the big question still looms: “If we become more family-friendly, will it hurt the bottom line?” Perhaps the better question is, “How does not being family-friendly affect the bottom line?” Want to know the answer to this question? Join the women of Executive Women International for our monthly meeting on Tuesday, January 9th. Come learn more about First Things First’ “Work Smart, Live Well” program and how they are helping employers and employees to balance the demands of work and life.
