The Transition Network

ATLANTA special interest groups

Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) bring together members who share common interests, activities or goals. SIGs are member-driven:  members initiate them, decide how they should be run, and provide leadership and organization.  We continue to have some great Special Interest Groups (SIGs) activities as part of the Atlanta TTN experience.  If you are interested in a SIG, please let us know so you can be added to the SIGs distribution list to get communications on upcoming meetings.  It's so exciting to see all this new activity with Atlanta TTN.  Share with a friend and let them experience the power of TTN!

Special Interest Groups are a TTN member benefit.  You must be a member in good standing to participate in SIGs.

Contact us as atlantachapter@thetransitionnetwork.org to learn more about the following SIGs in our chapter, or get in touch with the contacts in the individual SIG's below:




Book Club SIG

Meet & Eat SIG

Mahjong SIG

 

LEARN TO PLAY MAHJONG!
 
Ever wonder what's so fascinating about mahjong that so many people play it so avidly! Join me (Rhoda Margolis) for a lesson(s) and you may become an avid player as well.
 
Mahjong has a long history, beginning in ancient China and played by men, using ivory tiles. In the US, historically, it has been played by women - especially Jewish women in summer bungalow colonies - think Dirty Dancing. Now we fine it has widespread popularity. If you have ever played Gin Rummy with cards, you are half way there.
 
                                                    Date and time will be based upon a general consensus.
 
                                                    Since this will be in my home, participants need to be vaccinated and in good health. We will be a maximum of four participants.
 
                                                    Interested? Email me: rhodamargolis@gmail.com

Working Women SIG
October 13, 2020                           
7:00 to 8:30 PM
Via Zoom
Join us as we explore transitions associated with our professional lives. 
 Previous topics included:
  • What are your stretch goals, personal or professional?
  • The challenge of managing the limited resources of time and energy is lifelong. How do you manage your time and your energy? 
  • How is your experience and approach to work now the same or different from earlier in life? As we consider the transitions we will face in the future, let’s look at the changes we have already experienced in our work life.
 This is an open group… we welcome new attendees.
Ann Vitale, ann@2020careercoaching.com is the contact if more information is needed.
 



 
     Volunteer SIG:
     Kits for Afghan Refugee Children
 
    The women of the Atlanta TTN Chapter once again demonstrated the power of our collective generosity by responding to the call in September to provide kits for Afghan children
    refugees. Across our peer groups, SIGs and through individual members we assembled
31 kits with toiletries, school supplies, writing/coloring materials, toys and other supplies
    for each child.  Thank you for your grace and kindess!
