Thanks for letting us know! Unfortunately for me, I'll be working then, but please continue to alert us in the future. I would love to catch one of your presentations and have a chance to say hello and maybe even ask a question or two.

FWIW; Warren is probably thinking something along these lines:

TTM Book Value is currently $127,368.

1.2*$127,368 = $152842

This is good to know. It's not quite in my neck of the woods, but I hope to be able to be there. I've marked my calendar. Thank you.

This thread is now in the Local Chapters and Bogleheads Community forum (Bogleheads).
To some, the glass is half full. To others, the glass is half empty. To an engineer, it's twice the size it needs to be.

Just curious if the St. Louis chapter has any current activity? Almost ready to cast my current financial adviser aside and travel the Bgglehead route. I'd like to save myself the 1%+ fees but with 1 year to go before retirement, a little local support would make me feel more confident.

It looks like the St. Louis Bogleheads are inactive. Is that correct? Is anyone interested in changing that? Interested enough to lead the charge?

Not sure I have the time right now to lead the charge, but I am very interested in getting together.

Just checking in. Did anything ever come of the potential St. Louis area meet-up? Was a local chapter established?
