ABOUT THE CENTRAL OHIO CHAPTER

When a book about TTN, “Smart Women Don’t Retire – They Break Free,” was first published in 2008, a lot of women took notice.

One of them was Pat Snyder, a former newspaper reporter and lawyer. Pat recalls being so excited about the book, she and a group of others decided immediately to form a chapter. By 2009, the group was up and running.

Monthly programs, featuring guest speakers or TTN members, are held the third Monday from 6PM - 8PM at the Quest Conference Center on Polaris Pkwy, unless otherwise noted. Programs include a wide variety of topics and are based on the interests of the members. Past programs have covered such topics as nutrition, mindfulness and exercise, updating your wardrobe, travel, and tapping into your creative side through art and writing. Check out our list of programs for 2016 in the article below!

Our Chapter also has several special interest Peer Groups, which are only open to members.  Learn more by clicking on the orange Peer Group link to the left under Central Ohio.

It turned into a Celebration of Age with not only wine and chocolate, but music from a 60's band, perfect speaker for our audience, a raffle, and a fund raiser extraordinaire. Read more...
