The Transition Network

Welcome to the NEW YORK CITY Chapter 

We are women “50 and forward” who are actively exploring the many new challenges, interests, and opportunities available to us. TTN is a national organization and New York, the flagship chapter, is over 700 members strong.

Even during these difficult times, TTN women are developing imaginative ways to be together and support each other virtually.  We moved our cultural tours, informational and author events, workshops, peer groups and mingles to a virtual online experience that still keeps us together and supporting each other. 


Susan, Linda, Nina & Cokie:
The Women Pioneers of NPR (National Public Radio)


Tuesday, June 29, 2021
Time: 7:00  PM
Location: Zoom 

Join the TTN-NYC chapter for a very special event: a webinar about the history of the women pioneers of NPR (National Public Radio).

NYC chapter member Betty Rauch will moderate what is sure to be a fascinating discussion with Linda Wertheimer, Senior National Correspondent for NPR, and Lisa Napoli, author of the acclaimed new book Susan, Linda, Nina & Cokie: The Extraordinary Story of the Founding Mothers of NPR, a group biography of four beloved women (Susan Stamberg, Linda Wertheimer, Nina Totenberg and Cokie Roberts) who fought sexism, covered decades of American news, and whose voices defined NPR.

New York City Chapter

It’s time for the first days of glorious weather, for peonies and roses and many ways to connect with the vibrant women of TTN NYC.

It’s time for renewal. Through the challenges of the past year, TTN has been with us, keeping us connected, engaging us with fulfilling activities and lifting our spirits. Just as each of us are renewing and restarting, so is TTN NYC. Our all-volunteer organization is seeking “a few good women” to fill openings in key leadership positions.

In the articles that follow, Joyce Grossman highlights the benefits of becoming a TTN leader, drawing on the experiences of current and past leaders. Nancy Gold challenges us to think about situations when we are excluded and asks for our comments. Joan Menschenfreund writes an ode to the meaningful connections TTN women make, describing how friendships made by a group of outdoor diners will move into Spring. Learn how Sally Dougan turns flowers into art and check out her “In Case You Missed It.”Read the full article

DOROT welcomes volunteers to share their wisdom and experience in DOROT’s signature intergenerational programming. Join in the fun with teens participating in DOROT’s Summer Teen Internship program, a unique experience that brings teens and older adults together to share stories, learn new skills and bridge the generation gap. Read more...

With the arrival of April light, and two shots in my arm, I’m cautiously looking down the road in joyful anticipation. How about you? Have you ever been happier waving goodbye to 12 months in the rearview mirror?

While TTN still offers plenty of opportunities for us to meet on Zoom, now vaccinated members can finally begin to connect safely in person! Check out the latest Events Calendar to find out about TTN Pop-Up Events this Spring.

In the articles that follow, Nancy Gold shares lessons she has learned over the past year, and I reveal your post-pandemic fantasies.

Lessons Learned
Some things we learn under duress. Some things we knew already and learned to practice better. Some things we challenged ourselves to learn and it all happened this last year. It wasn’t always easy, and it was not always fun but whether you planned it or not, you grew. Here are some things I “learned”. I ask you to share with us what you learned.Read more...

Spring is upon us, and with it brings a light at the end of the tunnel, as we all receive our vaccinations. However, we need to continue all the precautions we’ve been following so diligently until the science tells us that we can safely gather again. Meanwhile, the Caring Collaborative is here for you and while we still can’t provide in-person help, come see what kind of assistance we can provide.Read the full article
