San Francisco Bay Area Peer Groups
Peer groups are generally composed of 8-12 women who meet monthly and have agreed-upon goals for their group. They provide small interactive settings to discuss issues people are facing as they go through transitions, or to engage in social, recreational or educational activities. Peer groups also encourage new connections, friendships, and a sense of community – terrific benefits of being a member of The Transition Network.
Contact Linda Sherwin, peer group coordinator, if you have any questions about our peer groups or want to consider joining a peer group. You can reach her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
NEW PEER GROUPS IN FORMATION
New peer groups are forming frequently. Check on our latest newsletter or contact our peer group coordinator Linda Sherwin.
Our chapter is launching a new type of group for TTN members – called pop-up groups – which focus on one specific outing, event, or issue where you meet on a time-limited basis for discussion and support around that issue. We already had birding outings and a group on whether to let your hair go gray or not. Do you have an idea for a pop-up group? Let Linda
There are openings for an an East Bay book group that focuses on non-fiction, i.e., biographies, autobiographies, history, memoirs, current affairs, etc. Some women are also interested in forming a fiction book group in the East Bay. Contact Linda
Several women have expressed interest in being part of a writers' group, one in San Francisco and one in the East Bay. Of course, there are many kinds of writers and many models for writers' groups, but if enough of you are interested, you can get together and see what kind of support you might offer one another.

Other Peer Group Openings
TTN now has six peer groups in the East Bay, two of which are looking for new members. We also have a list for a new group. One of the three groups in San Francisco is also looking for new members, and a fourth group is in the works. A waiting list has been started for a group in the area east of Orinda. A North Bay group, in the area around Santa Rosa and Sebastopol, has just started but needs some additional women. The East Bay dining-out group is about to get going and could always use a few more members. Let Linda know
if any of these groups interest you.
Want to be Part of a Special Interest Group?
Our chapter already has thriving Artists' and Entrepreneurial groups. Do you have another special interest you'd like to explore with other women? A group for volunteer activities? A theater or concert-going group? How about a singing group? Or just a group to have regular dinners together? Other ideas? Get in touch with Linda Sherwin
