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 to learn more about the following SIGs in our chapter, or get in touch with the contacts in the individual SIG's below:

Working Women SIG

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, is the contact if more information is needed.
