We are better together (Even when we are apart)

PPGGNY is here for our Members and to show our commitment we are offering a series of Virtual Career sessions. The current health crisis has turned our world upside down. Let’s take care of ourselves both physically and professionally. Use this time for your benefit and join us as we explore our personal professional development!

From the President


"Every problem is an opportunity in disguise.” John Adams

We have certainly had our share of problems with which to contend. While we in the New York area are lucky enough to have clear skies and air, our friends in the West are suffering from unprecedented fires. Children are attending schools virtually, cautiously in person, or a combination of both. Most of us are still sitting in front of our laptops in our homes. Hopefully new and better opportunities will arise from these strange times.

I am proud of the hard work our volunteers and board members have put in over the summer trying to find new opportunities to engage our members and keep our organization active. 

Our monthly webinars are  already scheduled through the winter months. We have initiated an important effort to improve diversity, equity and inclusion. And we  have carefully adapted our organization to meet the needs of our  members and friend s during these uncertain times. A big thank you to everyone for your time, support, and creative suggestions.

Now six months into the Pandemic, we are ready to start our programming year. Tomorrow, Wednesday, September 16th, is the first session of PPGGNY University featuring Ellen Estes. A few days later, this coming Monday, September 21st, Paul Lee will speak  on Shining the Light through Darkness: Planning in the Shadow of Fear, Social Distancing, Uncertainty & the Election.

If you have not yet joined, please renew your membership today – all webinars throughout the year are included. We will willingly offer scholarships to those who struggle to pay  their membership because of furloughs or budget cuts. Please do not hesitate to join.

Planned giving is all about the future, whether it is looking to the future for a gift to come to fruition, or planning for a steady stream of support in the future. In that spirit of focusing on the future, we want to be the steady hand in this storm with the hope that we will all be able to be together in the not-too-distant future.

All my best,

Stacy Sulman, JD
PPGGNY President
