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

Spring is here! Spring urges us to plant some, grow some, and bloom some. Even before the earth and air really hint at warmth, green shoots push through the brown ground with encouragement. “You can do it,” they say, “Look at us!”   Anytime is a great time for growth, but there is an awareness of growth, especially in the spring. The warmer weather inspires us to cast off what we no longer need, whether it is a sweater or an old habit. We may clean debris from a flower bed, clean out a closet—or we may want to “clean out” our minds.  EWI offers each of us opportunities to grow in our careers, communities, or connections. I hope each of you are taking advantage of your membership.  There are webinars, networking opportunities, monthly meetings, and multitude of ways to give back to our community, but it is up to us. We cannot wait expectantly for our lives or Chapter to change if we are unwilling to take some action. My hope is that we all strive to grow our membership, while growing ourselves.

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 first 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.  

The Chapter Forum is fast approaching.  Charlie Rosenquist is heading up the event, as well as the planning committee meetings.  I know she could use all the help that she can get. So if you have not volunteered, please do so.  Also, registration is still open.  Please, register yourself, co-workers and friends.  The event will be at the Hunter Museum on April 13th and is sure to be a fun-filled day focusing on EWI three C’s: Careers, Connections and Community.

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 issues.  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 April 9th at the Walden Club. Our guest speaker will be Anthony Watkins from Launch Chattanooga. He will be speaking about Entrepreneurship.  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
