The Transition Network 20th Anniversary Celebration

(Posted October 5, 2020)

Are You Ready To Celebrate?

One good thing has finally arrived in 2020 and that is TTN’s 20th Anniversary! Join us on October 14th and 15th as we reflect on all that we’ve accomplished, and explore what lies ahead for our dynamic and growing organization. We have several you won’t want to miss speakers and you’ll have the opportunity to meet and connect with TTN members and their guests from across the country.

Wednesday, October 14  

10:30 - 11:45 AM Eastern    A Conversation  To kick off our 20th Anniversary Celebration, we'll hear from Christine Millen, co-founder of TTN, about how she envisioned an organization that would connect women 50 and forward and Carol Oswald, TTN’s current Board president who will share our vision for the future.

12:15 - 1:45 PM Eastern    Lunch Mixer  Bring your lunch and let's connect!  We'll gather in small groups (breakout rooms) to meet women from other areas of the country. We'll set you up a few great questions to get the conversation going (not that you'll need much help!)
2:30 - 3:45 PM Eastern    Chapter 3: What Will Yours Be? Catherine Collinson, CEO & President of nonprofit Transamerica Institute and Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, will share research findings about working women's expectations about retirement and the actual experiences of retired women. In doing so, she will explore life's possibilities, while offering insights and a few practical realities.

5:00- 6:15  PM Eastern    Cocktail Mixer  What a day it will be! Christine, Carol and Catherine will have provided lots of food for thought. So let's connect over a cocktail and see what we learned. Once again, we'll gather in small groups (breakout rooms) to compare notes and meet women from other areas of the country.

Just think of the new friends you will make!

Thursday, October 15 

10:30 - 11:45 AM Eastern   TTN Women of Impact  TTN women make an impact and during this morning's panel discussion, you'll learn there's more than one way to do just that!  Jeanine Briefel, Long Island, Mary Klein, Philadelphia, Theresa Murray, Washington, DC, Betty Rauch, New York and Roni Buckley, Chicago (Moderator) are TTN members who have made an impact in their communities. We'll collaborate, share ideas, and resources to help each other engage, lead and advocate in our own backyards and beyond.

We've accumulated a lifetime of wisdom. And like no generation that has come before us, we have a chance to help change the world, yet again.

12:15 - 1:30 PM Eastern    Lunch Mixer  Today we want to hear from you! How do you see the future of TTN? What is the significance of TTN in your life and how has it changed in the time of COVID? What transitions do you see forthcoming for YOU that could help us shape programs in the future?
This lunch mixer will be a facilitated discussion about all of our futures. We'll mix you up so you still have a chance to meet women from around the country (that's the best part!)
Don't forget to bring your lunch!

2:30 - 3:35 PM  Eastern   Journalist, Author, and Health, Wellness and Senior Advocate... JOAN LUNDEN

What better way to launch TTN into its next 20 years than with the inspiration of Joan Lunden. We grew up with Joan.  She's us!  Joan's latest book Why Did I Come Into This Room? A Candid Conversaion about Aging, is her most candid, raw, and funny book to date. You won't want to miss Joan's take on aging with vigor and intention.
