Welcome to the TTNLong Island Chapter
For those of us 50 and older, our world is changing. What’s next for us? How do we want to spend our time? The Long Island chapter of The Transition Network is a great resource that offers many options to help us answer these questions. We are part of a vibrant national organization that supports women 50 and older during times of professional and personal change. We connect our members with each other and with valuable resources so that together we discover new perspectives and opportunities; which, in turn, enhance our ability to decide what impact to have – in our communities and on ourselves. TTN is a catalyst that sparks collective life-long learning, socializing and networking, personal growth, professional development, and community enhancement.

CELEBRATING WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH
CELEBRATING WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH-March 15, 2018
Did you know that a woman was instrumental in completing the Brooklyn Bridge? During TTN/LI’s annual Women's History event, we learned about that woman, Emily Warren Roebling, who took over when her husband became ill, as well as many other brilliant and determined women whose unheralded contributions helped make New York the great city that it is. Our guest speaker, Julie Scelfo, is the author of The Women Who Made New York. Ms. Scelfo captivated the audience with her stories about some of the extraordinary women whose lives impacted and improved the lives of future generations. The beautiful images of these women, provided by Hallie Heald, enhanced her lecture. Approximately 150 TTN/LI members took advantage of this free event at Molloy College, which was also attended by guests from AAUW and Sienna Women’s College.
