Message from Barbara Beizer, Board President

February 23, 2014

I am so excited about TTN in 2014!  

 

After six years of belonging to and volunteering for this amazing organization, I feel a profound sense of connection with TTN's mission - to inspire and support each other to continue a life of learning, engagement and leadership.  

 

Now, as TTN Board President, my main focus is to deliver on this mission and enrich the membership experience for each and every one of you.   

 

We have a strong and dedicated Board of Directors, a new Executive Director, over 100 volunteers running chapters around the country, and more than 30 talented women engaged in five committees that combined are driving our strategic plan - a plan designed to take TTN to the next level.  

Together, we are building our capacity as an organization to:  

  • offer members more opportunities for personal and professional development
  • provide more effective support for all members, especially the dedicated volunteers leading TTN chapters; and
  • increase TTN's presence as a powerful national organization for women 50+ in transition.  

When you and I joined TTN, we didn't just become a member of a peer group or find a local chapter; we joined a vibrant national organization of more than 2000 women 50 and forward in transition.   

 

We women have always been pioneers, forging our own paths and finding our own opportunities.  From quilting bees to contemporary lean-in circles, we have always valued community and naturally embraced change.  TTN was created out of these traditions to meet the challenge of living longer, healthier lives full of meaning and purpose.

 

I am very grateful for this leadership opportunity and deeply appreciative of all our accomplishments as an organization.  I want each of you to know that I welcome your ideas, treasure your wisdom and and value your work.  

 

I look forward to a spectacular year of learning and growing together!
