Long Island Chapter - Who We Are
"Our geography is huge, and so is our future."
As most of you are aware, the Long Island chapter of The Transition Network originated in the fall of 2003. As we approach the 10th anniversary of TTN/LI, we marvel at the fact that during 2012 we expanded from 225 to 470 women from Nassau, Suffolk and the eastern area of Queens. These 470 women are recipients of all the benefits that The Transition Network Long Island has to offer.
This increase in our membership and the enthusiasm and energy these women generate are the reasons that we can say “Our Geography is Huge, and so is Our Future.” We know that we have done and will continue to do amazing things for ourselves and for each other. TTN/LI provides the opportunity to:
- Join with others to explore common interests
- Explore new ideas and dreams with our peers
- Commit to being Women Connecting with Women
- Develop friendships
As a result, we recently have added several new peer groups in order to maintain our commitment of providing something for everyone. Some of the new groups are discussion groups, art films (Indies) and theatre groups, as well as other groups centered on hiking, gourmet cooking and more.
We are still reeling from the effects of our feature article that appeared in Newsday last January. An extraordinary amount of effort, dedication and hours have been put into accommodating the over 250 women who responded and became members of TTN/LI. Congratulations Membership Committee for the endless hours of time you have given to this cause. We all thank you!
In addition to these programs, there were several ‘Gals Night Out’ gatherings which presented the opportunity to gather, discuss and learn more about TTN/LI. These are always open to members and non members.
2013 is slated to be another banner year for TTN and we look forward to seeing you at one or all of these programs.
