What Are We Celebrating Now and Throughout 2020?

2020 is a year of significant anniversaries: the 150th for NYC’s beloved Metropolitan Museum, the 100th for Women's Suffrage and the League of Women Voters and the 50th for Earth Day. 

2020 also marks the 20th Anniversary of TTN! For twenty years, TTN-NYC, the first and original chapter, has been the home for women who continue to lead the way and break the rules. 

  • We are celebrating in June and playing host to members from around the country for a weekend full of activities. See Debbi Honorof's article.
  • Do you remember the leading female authors in 2000? See Joyce Grossman's article for a fascinating look back.
  • We are also celebrating tips for overcoming the winter doldrums and interesting TTN events you should not have missed. See the February Short List by Karen Gens & Susan Acunto and In Case You Missed It by Sally Dougan.
  • Not quite ready to celebrate? Are you someone who "kicks the can down the road"? See Nancy Gold's latest article.

Get ready to celebrate TTN’s 20th Anniversary Year!

The old saying “kicking the can down the road” is apropos in so many ways. To me it means avoiding making a decision. Some time that is not a bad thing. You just need more time to gather more information. It makes sense to “sleep on it” before you decide your next step. Maybe you want to consider the situation from different angles, get another person’s perspective before you move ahead. All these things are smart to do but there comes a time when “kicking the can down the road” becomes a true test of character. Are you part of the problem or part of the solution?... MORE
