Support TTN

Here’s a Win/Win idea for NYC chapter members
and prospective new members.  


We all know a friend, family member or acquaintance who would truly enjoy and benefit from joining TTN.  If you encourage them to sign up before
October 7, they get to attend our fun and free
TTN NYC 2.0 Festival and you get a nifty gift.  You both Win!

The Let's Grow,Let's Go membership campaign runs until the end of this year but our October 7 Festival is an added incentive to have new members join now.  So if you want that gift, have your new member register here and make sure she includes your name in the “Member Referral Program” section of the online form.  And then you both sign up for the Festival with wine, food, auctions, demos, info booths, sponsors, goody bags and more!
