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.  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.  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.

     New Jersey Culture Mavens

The Northern New Jersey Chapter recently launched "NJ Culture Mavens" (NJCM), a special interest group for TTN-NJ members designed for women who want to stay current on and participate in cultural events in New Jersey and New York and network with others who have similar interests. 

A word about how Culture Mavens works – TTN NJ members who sign up for Culture Mavens receive a monthly meeting notice, and the first 15 who respond are able to attend that month’s meeting in a member's home. Others are wait-listed and notified if space is available. All CMNJ members receive minutes from each meeting with information on what was discussed and can connect with others to attend events. Members who can’t make a meeting can still benefit from joining the group.

CMNJ members also receive the membership list, and can use it to make connections with other members and invite them to attend events. It is a good way for new members to get connected and for all members to socialize and enjoy.

Over snacks and coffee, members discuss their preferences and favorites in theatre, music, art, films and even TV.  Highlights include sharing what has been recently seen, making recommendations for upcoming events and sharing discount opportunities and tips.

Membership in this special interest group now exceeds 25.

How often have you seen a great movie and have no one to discuss it with?? Join our movie club where you will be able to share your impressions with other TTN movie enthusiasts.  There are two movie groups in our chapter based on location.

The Movie Group meets meets monthly to discuss three agreed to movies to be seen on your own or with other members. The group then gets together to discuss at a member's home at an agreed to time and date.

For information on the Bergen Group, please contact Rosemary Byrne at

      "Reading, the Perfect PassioN"

Do your reading interests range all over the place?   If it doesn’t matter whether you read fiction or non-fiction, as long as it’s good writing, this is the Book Club for you.  Members will make monthly selections based on whatever strikes their fancy. Discussions then take place at a member's home at an agreed to time and date.
