President's Message


    Thank you for visiting the Des Moines Chapter website. This site welcomes members, potential members and visitors interested in learning more about The Des Moines Chapter of Executive Women International. Chartered in April of 1971, we have remained a strong and active chapter with representatives of approximately 21 member firms. We meet monthly (the first Monday of the month) for programs that support professional women coming together to help their companies, careers, and communities thrive.

    Participation on committees and/or on the board provides professional development as well as opportunities for business contacts and networking. We are proud of our chapter's volunteer involvement in the community promoting literacy and providing flexible scholarships that cover tuition.

    Founded in 1938, EWI today claims approximately 1,500 firms or companies as members, and 2,000 representatives worldwide. EWI brings together key individuals from diverse businesses for the purpose of promoting member firms, enhancing personal and professional development, and encouraging community involvement. We encourage you to browse our website and use our join form if you have any questions or comments about EWI or this website. We invite you to join us!

    Have a blessed day!

    Barb Hobson, President
    Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines
