Support TTN

Chicago Chapter Committees Need your Help!

In order to continue to grow our chapter and the programs we offer, the Steering Committee needs your help and your skill set. We are looking for several TTN Chicago members to help the Steering Committee and hope you can find the time to work with us.

Here are the areas we need assistance in:

Chapter Administration 
Working with Kimberly Mulcahy:


This individual will maintain records of meetings, agendas and minutes. She will attend steering committee meetings and calls; record proceedings and write minutes for distribution and approval by the committee; post minutes online.

Marketing and Communications
Working with Steering Committee Member Dorothy Balabanos, we are looking for:

TTN Chicago Website/Chapter Pages Content Editor/Newsletter Creator

In collaboration with the Marketing Committee and other committees for events, announcements and other activities, this person will be responsible for developing content and posting information on the TTN Chicago website. Strong writing skills are key, as well as competence in web-based communications. Familiarity with web page editing tools similar to WordPress is necessary.

TTN Chicago Email Campaign Assistant

This TTN Chicago member will be responsible for ensuring the email campaigns via Constant Contact are created and delivered. Knowledge of Constant Contact or a willingness to learn are a must. (This role could be combined with the Website Editor)

TTN Chicago Facebook Administrator

This person will be responsible for posting articles and news of interest to our TTN Chicago community, including updates on events provided by our team/committees. A familiarity with Facebook page management, as well as an interest in issues related to women 50+ and Chicago happenings is a must.

Graphic Designer

This person will help design marketing communications pieces. Experience in designing communications and some aptitude in using design software is important.

Working with Roni Buckley and Joy Loverde:

Membership List Maintenance

This TTN Chicago member will be responsible for updating and maintaining our membership list in a spreadsheet. Basic knowledge of Excel is needed.

Ambassador Team

TTN Chicago Ambassadors welcome, orient, and connect new members to TTN and the Chicago chapter activities and members.  Once assigned to a new member, the Ambassador will work with that new member for a period of three months. See more details here.

Events Coordinator

This individual will help plan and organize chapter-wide social events to engage TTN Chicago members.


Several members are needed to speak at the conclusion of every TTN chapter event – telling attendees why they joined TTN and how TTN has played a role in their lives.

Working with Helene Stelian:

Location Scout

This member would research and add onto our current list of possible venue rentals in the city of Chicago for TTN events, including details like cost, capacity, AV equipment, etc. Ideas from current members would be funneled to the Location Scout. Requires good organizational skills and basic Internet research

We expect these functions would require about 2-3 hours per week each, maybe less (maybe more at times). If you have the skills set and the time, we’d love to have you help us grow our chapter. Please email Kimberly Mulcahy at if you are interested in helping and she will connect you with the right Steering Committee Member.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
