Happy Anniversary! Blush Magazine

Every woman enjoys the pride and delight that comes with celebrating an anniversary, and this month marks 20 years, not just for one woman, but a unified group of them. Chattanooga’s chapter of Executive Women International (EWI) is the honored organization and the entire community should be giving them a celebratory pat on the back.

The first chapter of EWI was established in California in 1938 under the name Executives’ Secretaries, Inc., but with the personal and professional strides females began to make, the corporation decided in 1977 that Executive Women International was a better-suited moniker. As time has passed, more than 75 chapters have been formed across the U.S., Canada and Europe, including Chattanooga’s, which took shape in 1987. And what exactly do these dedicated ladies meet each month to achieve? According to their website, EWI works to bring together members of diverse businesses to encourage community involvement by “affording opportunities and structure for leadership and professional development.” And since it’s inception, EWI has been doing just that. Perhaps one of its greatest contributions is an annual scholarship awarded to an outstanding student at UTC and Chattanooga State Technical Community College in memory of a former member, Jean Bradford.

On Tuesday, May 8, EWI is celebrating two decades of service and sustenance and you’re invited to join in the fun! Social hour will begin at 5 p.m. at the Walden Club with dinner and a program following at 6 p.m. For more event and ticket information, visit the EWI website, ewichattanooga.org, or call Nancy Templeton at 423-756-3877. Above all, this organization believes in women uplifting and supporting other women, and now’s your chance to encourage and assist these principles undefined ladies of all walks and professions can certainly benefit from them!
