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. 


NYC Chapter Members Making An Impact

Our chapter members have donated over $7000 to the Food Bank For NYC in just the past month. The need continues. Please consider making a donation now.  MORE INFO

New York City Chapter

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. TTN Poet in Residence Harriet Shenkman offers up a celebratory poem, and we spotlight TTN author Erica Abeel’s soon-to-be-released novel. Finally, read In Case You Missed It to learn all about recent TTN events.Read the full article

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

We welcome a sense of calm and civility as we move forward through February, the shortest month. Have we escaped the worst of winter? Can the splendors of Spring be far behind?

Looks like we’ll still be pretty much holed up for a while though, even if we’re lucky enough to have snagged appointments for the Covid vaccine. Happily, we can continue to participate in the myriad wonderful Zoom possibilities offered by TTN.

2020 threw us some curves and BIG challenges, but we hope you agree that your TTN chapter has weathered them just fine.

We’ve increased our programming, albeit virtual, and been able to meet and get to know members from the other chapters. We’ve kept our TPG’s, SIG’s and CC groups going as well as making sure our members get the support they needed during this global crisis. We added Inward Bound to keep us all
amused, and even welcomed some new members.Read the full article
