ABOUT THE ATLANTA CHAPTER
The Atlanta chapter offers Transition Peer Groups, Special Interest Groups and interest programs to engage our members. We are also very interested in ways to give back to our community - both locally and across the globe.
We are a growing community of vibrant, engaged, and energetic women 50 years and forward who share experiences, discover new perspectives and options, and make new friends as we embrace this time of transition together.
The poet, Mary Oliver, wrote: Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
As successful women, we want to apply our strengths and creativity to continue to live active and meaningful lives and use this time well.
In the words of our members, we come together to:
- Discover new freedoms and explore the richness of experience open to us
- Create meaningful new relationships and a supportive community
- Think through retirement issues: define what it means, work through anxieties, and plan and organize next steps
- Find new passions and start “encore careers”
- Reinvent ourselves
Come help us build our community and find support as we define and refine our visions for what’s next and make it happen. Newcomers are welcome!We are having virtual Peer Group meetings and some SIGs are meeting through Zoom. We will keep you posted when our face to face meetings, events, and outings are re-scheduled. Do follow the guidelines put forth by health professionals and stay safe.
