ABOUT THE ATLANTA CHAPTERWe are growing! The Atlanta chapter has grown into three peer groups, one in east cobb, one inside the perimeter and one outside the program. We are looking to continue to grow and create new groups. Right now our East Cobb and inside the perimeter (ITP) group meets the 3rd Monday evening (7-9 pm) of each month and our outside the perimeter (OTP) group meets the 4th Monday evening. We also have monthly joint programs and special interest groups available as well. We continue to look for women 50 and forward who want to form groups to share and support each other around the Atlanta metro area. Each Peer Group is between 8-15 members. Come join in the fun!
We are a new and growing community of vibrant, engaged, and energetic women 50 years and forward who meet monthly to share experiences, discover new perspectives and options, and make new friends as we embrace this time of transition together.
The poet, Mary Oliver, wrote:
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
As successful women, we want to apply our strengths and creativity to continue to live active and meaningful lives and use this time well.
In the words of our members, we come together to
- Discover new freedoms and explore the richness of experience open to us
- Create meaningful new relationships and a supportive community
- Think through retirement issues: define what it means, work through anxieties, and plan and organize next steps
- Find new passions and start “encore careers”
- Reinvent ourselves
Join Our Vibrant Group of Women!Come help us build our community and find support as we define and refine our visions for what’s next and make it happen. The group is meeting for discussions about "what's next" once a month. Newcomers are welcome! At this time, we have three "Peer" groups meeting. The East Cobb and Inside the Perimeter (ITP) Group meets on the 3rd Monday of each month from 7-9 pm and the Outside the Perimeter (OTP) Group meets on the 4th Monday of each month from 7-9 pm.
