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.

Happy Spring to everyone! What a fantastic March meeting!! The room was filled with energy, I received lots of feedback on how much everyone enjoyed Speed Networking, and it was a lot of fun to watch!! I hope you were able to take that positive energy and produce tremendous results. I also hope you saved some energy for April’s meeting!! Please remember to log in online and register for each meeting. There are no standing reservations, even with prepaid meals. We want to make sure each person has a meal.
The start of Spring brings blooming trees and flowers, sunny days and little pick-me-up for us all. We are able to get out more, enjoy outdoor activities and have more daylight. This is an exciting time of year, time for us to bloom and be sunny as an organization. Spread the word about EWI of Chattanooga. Let people know about the great networking opportunities, the professional development, and the amazing fundraising work. It is never too early to talk about September’s Barnyard Auction! We have a fantastic Executive Luncheon planned for June. Take advantage of all your membership has to offer.
I am so excited that EWI Corporate President Ronwyn Anderson with Soft-Lite Windows will be our guest speaker for April’s meeting! She will kick off our “Spring Into EWI of Chattanooga!” Membership Challenge. It’s a great time to bring a guest, learn more about EWI, and meet our Corporate President.
It is with involvement in EWI that you and your firm reach your greatest potential, not just with a membership.
