The Transition Network

Welcome to the NEW YORK CITY Chapter 


We are women “50 and forward” who are actively exploring the many new challenges, interests, and opportunities available to them. TTN is a national organization, New York, the flagship chapter, is over 700 members strong.

Even during these difficult times, TTN women are developing imaginative ways to be together and support each other virtually.  We moved our cultural tours, informational and author events, workshops, peer groups and mingles to a virtual online experience. 



2020 threw us some curves and BIG challenges, but we hope
you agree that your TTN chapter has weathered them just fine.

We’ve increased our programming, albeit virtual, and been able to meet and get to know members from the other chapters.
We’ve kept our TPG’s, SIG’s and CC groups going as well as making sure our members get the support they needed during this global crisis. We added Inward Bound to keep us all
amused, and even welcomed some new members.

And here’s who made all that happen…

Think about joining one of these committees in 2021.  It’s fun and a way to be creative, learn new skills and polish your old ones. Mostly it’s rewarding meeting and working with other members who share the same passion for keeping our members active and engaged.

And have you completed the Service Collaborative survey yet? A few of these member volunteers have put together this wonderful new program but they need your input before rolling it out. Please click the link to the survey right now and help them out. Thanks and…

TTN Member Linda Brosterman’s Art Show
at Anderson Contemporary, 180 Maiden Lane

Linda’s works are now on view at the Anderson Contemporary Gallery Art Show-A Moment In Time, opening November 19, 2020. Appointments to view the works can be arranged.
Her latest Wave series of paintings is now on display. Using 20-30 layers of paint, and the ironically precise placement of every color, splash and droplet, Linda’s abstract expressions remind us of the awe inspiring, infinite artistry of one of the great natural phenomenon.

Learn more about Linda here.
