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.

Information about joining and member benefits.
Happy August, ladies! I hope you enjoyed last month’s very powerful and moving meeting where our military veterans shared their stories. Thank you so much for your faithful attendance and support! This month’s meeting is our annual business meeting, as well as an opportunity to network with each other. You should have received materials that we will be voting on.
Please be thinking about how you can use your skills and talents in EWI now and in this upcoming new fiscal year in our chapter. It takes all of us to keep the chapter healthy and thriving. Your involvement allows you, your firm, and the community to benefit. Challenge yourself to choose a committee to get involved with this upcoming year. And of course, we can always use more help getting ready for our big annual fundraiser – EWI Gras in September.
Speaking of September, it is just around the corner. Has your firm sponsored a table yet, or have you purchased your ticket yet? Get them before they are all gone. Also, we are asking each representative to try and solicit three quality items for the auction. Let Kelly McCoy know what those items are as soon as you secure them. Bring your items to our August meeting on August 9th! They will be ready to collect cash donations as well as items for the auction.
Don’t forget your opportunity to earn “credits” toward your leadership certificate this year by listening to the monthly webinar, attending the monthly chapter meeting or board meeting, and getting involved in a committee.

says about EWI...
"I am pleased that Executive Women International (EWI) is serving business women in our state, and I support their work of enhancing careers, promoting connections, and most of all encouraging community involvement.
As someone who ran a company, I saw firsthand the tremendous positive impact EWI had on one member of my staff in particular, and through her involvement in the organization her professional growth and confidence were greatly enhanced.
I wholeheartedly endorse the work and the mission of EWI."
