The Transition Network 20th Anniversary
January 26, 2020
Do you remember what you were doing in March 2000? You were probably wondering how you were going to get everything done, managed, scheduled, coordinated … like all the other busy women you knew. Christine Millen and Charlotte Frank – having recently left their high-powered jobs – were creating The Transition Network around a dining room table in New York City. Christine was leaving a career as a partner at Deloitte and Charlotte had been in charge of contracting for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
Christine and Charlotte knew what they wanted to STOP doing but not what they wanted to START doing. To answer that all-important “what’s next” question, they founded a dynamic community of women who support each other through change. Today, The Transition Network has grown from a small group of women to an organization of 3,000 members in 14 chapters coast to coast and others who participate online as National members.
As we celebrate our 20th anniversary this year, it’s time to Honor our Past and Imagine our Future. Each of our chapters is planning a local celebration during 2020. And we’re excited to announce that there will be a big national birthday celebration in New York on Monday, June 8. All members are invited to attend.
The New York City chapter is hosting our national celebration. Festivities will include a luncheon, afternoon program, and evening entertainment. Members who’d like to spend the weekend in New York can take part in gallery tours, sightseeing, and receptions with other TTN members from around the country.
What a wonderful way to kick off the next 20 years!! Stay tuned for more details on the celebrations in all chapters across the country. Happy Anniversary, TTN!
