Michele Withorn expressed her enthusiasm for the coming year – the Chattanooga Chapter's 25th – by introducing a Servant Leadership theme and accompanying strategic plan incorporating the organization's “three C's”: Connections, Careers and Community, allowing each member to participate and grow as an organization and as an individual.

Goals for this year include highlighting each firm, executive and representative, engaging members through mentoring and increased networking, education on the value of EWI membership and increased community involvement through philanthropy and fundraising.

According to Michelle, “Servant leaders serve the people they lead, exhibiting selflessness through listening, empathy, awareness and foresight, and by inspiring, empowering, personally investing in and committing to the growth of others and building a healthy community. That's what EWI is all about, and we're excited to be reinforcing these ideals as we celebrate our 25th anniversary!”
