TOS50 Member Details
3 years 17 weeks
Sandra Tankoos (Sandy) was the founder and President of two successful court reporting agencies, Tankoos Reporting Company, Inc. and Ar-Ti Recording, Inc. for 28 years. During that time her companies were awarded and worked with many government contracts on the Federal, State and local levels, as well as servicing an ever growing private clientele. Sandy and her companies enjoyed an excellent reputation within the reporting industry.
Upon graduating college, Sandy worked as a Spanish teacher for 11 years. She has a BA from Queens College of the City of New York and a Masters Degree in Spanish from C.W. Post College in Long Island.
In 2006 Sandy decided to retire. At that time she sold both companies to a friendly competitor. Since then she has spent more time with her husband, children and grandchildren, traveling and volunteering for organizations that are important to her. She also began to use the Internet more frequently and discovered that going from site to site could sometimes be time consuming. She began to search for one site that would cover a variety of subjects that she found interesting. Not being able to find such a site is what planted the seed that eventually grew into TOS50.com, a website that explores areas of interest for those of us who are on The Other Side of 50.
Sandy is active in her community. In the past she has been a board member of League of Women Voters, Nassau County NOW, her local civic association and President of Temple Sinai of Roslyn. Currently she is serving on the national board of the Union for Reform Judaism, as well as the boards of some of URJ’s affiliates.
Sandy believes that those of us who are on The Other Side of 50 remember the idealism of the 60's – the joy and the tears. Some of us are at a point in our lives where we now have more time to spend on activities of leisure, while others are looking for a change of career, perhaps seeking out a more rewarding form of work. We may find ourselves having more time to read, to volunteer, to travel or to spend time with our grandchildren. Sandy and the TOS50 staff hope you will enjoy visiting the TOS50.com website. We look forward to having you join and participate in our forums.
