welcome to the washington, dc chapter

The Washington D.C. Chapter encompasses the Greater DC area, to include suburban Maryland and Northern Virginia. 

In 2004, a core group of women enthusiastically joined together to establish
the D.C. Chapter of The Transition Network.



 

Our volunteer D.C. Chapter Leadership continues its dedication to the mission of TTN: 

To inspire and support professional women, 50 and beyond, through transitions.

Our members are vibrant, active women with a wide range of interests and talents who recognize that the years after 50 can be full of new pursuits and sources of learning and fulfillment. Located in our nation’s capital, we often take advantage of the exciting events, theater, exhibits, people and other opportunities that makes our area unique, all while creating special connections with each other.

Get Connected!
 Get Involved!  
 
   



Because of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the past 2 ½ months have swept us all into a new transition - one for which most of us were unprepared. TTN DC Chapter came together to offer more than 25 DC Chapter hosted and Friends of TTN virtual events via Zoom, reaching hundreds of women, not only within our own chapter but also from other TTN Chapters across the US.

We connected, we learned, we laughed and supported each other through all our programs and online events. We were not alone. 


Now that the DC Metro area is beginning to relax some of its restrictions, we are still here for you. We plan to offer fresh, new programs via Zoom, as well as face to face activities as it becomes safe to do so. We hope to offer some small face-to-face group activities in the summer months if members desire them--all in keeping with our region's guidelines. 

We look forward to seeing you soon, no matter if it’s via Zoom or a small gathering for an outdoor lunch. We will continue to plan events in order to make available to all of our members opportunities for connection.
 
Here's a look at some upcoming Virtual Events.  See our EVENTS Calendar for all upcoming events.

Quotes from TTN Chapter Members
 
Rebecca De Los Rios: “When I retired after 30 years of working in Global Health, I felt like I was jumping into unknown territory without a parachute. By joining TTN-DC four years ago and being involved with many members and activities, I have had a strong safety net that's provided a lot of support; I’m happy to say that my transition resulted in a smooth landing!”

Members are excited about trying new things, meeting new people and being exposed to new ideas.
The enthusiasm that all members have for this organization keeps me engaged! They are so happy to have found TTN, love coming to meetings, want to have more activities and opportunities to do fun things and spend time together!

Keep up with TTN-DC on Facebook

TTN DC Chapter Tuesday Ted Talk - The Science of Happiness
Over 100 TTN members registered for this DC Chapter Ted Talk event:

Dan Gilbert's, The Surprising Science of Happiness.

The premise of his current research -- that our assumptions about what will make us happy are often wrong -- is supported with clinical research drawn from psychology and neuroscience. But his delivery is what sets him apart. His engaging -- and often hilarious -- style pokes fun at typical human behavior and invokes pop-culture references everyone can relate to. This winning style translates also to Gilbert's writing, which is lucid, approachable and laugh-out-loud funny. The immensely readable Stumbling on Happiness, published in 2006, became a New York Times bestseller and has been translated into 20 languages. Read more...
