St. Louis Chapter 2012+

Postby BetaMax » Wed Feb 29, 2012 1:18 am

Last year's meeting was a huge success, but I haven't seen anything since. I would love to participate in sometime more regular. Any interest?

I would be interested in attending a St. Louis Bogleheads meetup.

I would as well. Is there any plans for a St Louis meeting in the near future?

Hi Everyone,

I volunteered to be the St. Louis local chapter coordinator, organized the first meeting, and have not been very organized since! I would love to attend local events, but don't really have the wherewithal to organize a regular event going forward.

If someone would be interested to take over the reins, please let me know.

Thanks
Don

I would love to sometime "down-the-road", but I do not have the local connections yet to be an effective organizer for these meetings. I would be willing to help someone though.

Is there currently a St. Louis Chapter Bogleheads ?

I would really be interested in participating.

I just registered to say I would be interested in attending.

Just moved here to StL. Long time reader of the forum, just recently registered. Interested if there is a local meeting here in St. Louis. Thanks!

I don't think there have been any scheduled in quite some time, mostly from lack of a leader. I don't believe there is currently a chapter organizer.

Hum, what was the first meeting like? I have never been to a bh meeting. I am usually more of a reader on here then anything else. I am over in Troy, IL. Where was the meeting held last time?

Right now Im working at least 72 hours a week. How many people are interested? sometimes I also get forced at the last minute to work.

I didn't attend, as I didn't hear about it until too late. As far as I know, only one meeting was ever held.

This is the planning thread:

I would also like to attend local events, and don't want to be a coordinator. So, since we lack a coordinator (which is OK), perhaps we should brainstorm what kind of event/locale would work for a get-together. I'm not even sure where to start! What do St. Louis Bogleheads think would be a good kind of event?

What do people want to do? If it's just to chat, that's simple enough. Get a rough count, book a private room at a restaurant, everybody show up and buy their own dinner.

If you want speakers or presentations, that's a lot more complicated.

We could all get together and discuss what tactical moves we should all be making in this type of market, because it's different this time. :twisted:

I would be interested in attending the next STL Bogleheads meeting.
Would love to attend the Philly conf in Oct. 2013 but reluctant to part with the $$. Might be worth it to see Jack and the Vang facility.

Introducing myself here, as I'm a long time lurker living in St. Louis (at least for the next year or so). I would take the reigns and help to organize a more active group; however, I may be leaving town next July and would hate to leave things half done. I will know in early December where the next stage of my training (which would be a 3-5 year commitment) will take me, at which time I can focus on leadership - until then, I am definitely in for any meetings that may be arranged!

Anyone know if there has been any further discussion about a St. Louis Bogleheads meeting?
