Special Interest Groups
Special Interest Groups or SIGs are a unique members-only benefit.
TTN SIGs are small groups of women who join together in a member's home, or other mutually agreed upon location, to engage in informal discussions on topics of mutual interest. They are composed of 8-12 women who share an activity or topic for discussion that they want to explore in more depth than the regular monthly TTN meetings might allow. Below you will find descriptions and contact information for our existing Special Interest Groups.
New Special Interest Groups:
Don't see what you're looking for in our exiting groups? If you have an idea for a special interest group, please contact us. When there is enough “critical mass,” new SIGs will form.

The Writers Special Interest Group is for women who have a passion for writing. You may have written a book, or want to explore writing one, or have in interest in writing in general. Every month the group gets together and writes to a given "prompt". The group is led by Anna Crooks. She is looking to promote the sharing of ideas and development of a community of TTN members who often are isolated by the craft of writing.
Movies & Theater
This Special Interest Group is led by Mary Hiland. The Movie and Theatre Peer Group will try to attend at least one movie, play and/or concert each month. The events are included in the TTN newsletter as all members are welcome to join the peer group at a movie or a play. The group has seen a number of movies and several plays and enjoyed dinner afterwards with a discussion of the movie or play, including several plays where our own TTN member Leslie Robinson is performing. Mary welcomes your suggestions!

This group was founded on a commitment to build a support network for women dealing with career-related transitions. Given the broad experience and expertise available in our members, it was decided to extend our mission to include any issue relevant to women in transition. We envision this special interest group as a skill-sharing community of women who can help each other with challenges such as managing finances or navigating the world of health coverage. The skills we share could also be related to hobbies such as photography and gardening. Currently we are engaged in a study of Medicare including enrollment rules, options of coverage, and potential reforms
