Anyone else from the Greater Detroit/Flint/Monroe area interested in forming a Chapter?

There used to be a Michigan chapter a few years ago but it has been inactive lately. There probably may still be an interest. Here is a 2007 link to the third meeting.

yeah, what Springman said.

I went to a couple meetings back in 2007, but interest died off when the market turned on us. Rick Ferri spoke at one of them - that was pretty sweet.

I'm in the Detroi metro area, so would up for something local here.

cheers,

I tried to arrange a meeting in 2008/09. Living though in Bay City though, was just too far out the loop to get things done as most people were in the Detroit metro area. I, as well as 'bob u' I'm sure, would be very interested in more meetings. bob u should have a list of past members...Doug .

Anything come of these posts. I live in Southeast Michigan and would be interested. Would also be interested in the Grand Rapids area after we retire in a couple of years.

Did the interest die? I am a newbie and have lots to learn. I would be interested in meeting with others.

I live in SE Michigan and it would be cool to meet other like-minded people. Is the Detroit chapter still alive?

I'm in Toledo and have frequently thought having local or semi-local meetings would be of interest.

Lots of interest but still no one has stepped up and volunteered to be the Detroit Local Chapter Leader. Just PM me if you're willing to step up.

It's official; we now have a new Detroit Metro Local Chapter and Colum has agreed to be the local chapter coordinator. Be on the lookout for a new thread by Colum.

Good luck to the new Local Chapter and all its members!
