TTN/LI needs you.  Please volunteer to participate on one of these important committees.  The responsibilities of the various committees are as follows:

  • Keep members apprised of volunteer opportunities
  • Partner with other organizations where appropriate
Contemporary Social Issues Committee
The purpose of this committee shall be to identify topics and develop programs that educate chapter members on current social issues.

Events and Programs Committee
In addition to looking for great social activities, our members have asked for programs that address a variety of interests and current topics. The committee:
  • Identifies and develops ideas for programs
  • Works to design programs and workshops that share information
  • Stimulate new ideas and conversation among members
  • Researches and contacts potential presenters
  • Arranges program details such as date, location and cost
  • Hosts the event and obtains feedback on the value of the program
This committee offers a great opportunity to share ideas, meet interesting people and bring exciting programs to our members.
The Health & Wellness Committee
Our Committee addresses current and relevant topics that engage our members’ well-being; both physically and emotionally.  In our current climate of 2020-2021 our vision is upbeat and our topics are related to “Seasons of Self-care”
Membership Committee
Our members are the core of TTN LI and the membership committee offers important support for individual members and special interest groups.  This committee:
  • Personally contacts all new TTN members, as well as women interested in the organization
  • Conducts monthly new member teas
  • Conducts Connect Now meetings, which assists members in creating or joining special interest or discussion groups. Also gives an overview of TTN for people wishing to join TTN.
  • Provides guidance and support during the first three months of a new special interest group.
  • Acts as liaison and support to special interest group facilitators/administrators.
  • Promotes communication among special interest groups, sharing ideas and opportunities.
This committee is a wonderful way to get to know members and help to provide the critical connections that will help TTN and our special interests groups thrive.
