Executive Women in Finance’s success and growth is due, in part, to our commitment to the organization’s mission, values, and standards of business ethics.  While a variety of opportunities are provided for business development to our members, overt solicitation, use of the membership directory for business development or marketing, or sharing of member information with non-members without the prior approval of the board of directors is strictly prohibited.

EWF membership is approved based on an individuals’ personal area of expertise, experience, seniority level, etc. These are qualifications specific to the person. Memberships are therefore not transferrable, in any scenario, to another individual, within (or outside of) their company.  Furthermore, memberships are non-refundable and expire at the end of the calendar year.  If the applicant’s company is funding the membership dues, the applicant must confirm that this policy has been communicated to, and approved by, the proper company representative.
