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.

She is a standup comic, an actor, a blogger, an internet broadcaster, and poet. In June 2021 she published ROAD TRIPS a masterful debut collection of poetry divided into four parts. MORE INFO

New York City Chapter

Along with the change in temperature that summer brings, it’s also bringing a change in lifestyle as we slowly approach a “new normal.” However, while some of us are raring to get out there and restart our prior lives, we need to be aware that some of us are not quite ready to take that step or be able to due to certain health issues that make us vulnerable.

Also remember that the Caring Collaborative is here for you. We are exploring ways in which we can safely re-introduce some of the in-person assistance we had provided pre-covid and will let you know soon when those activities can resume. Meanwhile, enjoy the great weather and stay healthy!Read the full article

It’s time for the first days of glorious weather, for peonies and roses and many ways to connect with the vibrant women of TTN NYC.

It’s time for renewal. Through the challenges of the past year, TTN has been with us, keeping us connected, engaging us with fulfilling activities and lifting our spirits. Just as each of us are renewing and restarting, so is TTN NYC. Our all-volunteer organization is seeking “a few good women” to fill openings in key leadership positions.

In the articles that follow, Joyce Grossman highlights the benefits of becoming a TTN leader, drawing on the experiences of current and past leaders. Nancy Gold challenges us to think about situations when we are excluded and asks for our comments. Joan Menschenfreund writes an ode to the meaningful connections TTN women make, describing how friendships made by a group of outdoor diners will move into Spring. Learn how Sally Dougan turns flowers into art and check out her “In Case You Missed It.”Read the full article

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.
