Des Moines Iowa local chapter Revived

Post by NAVigator » Thu May 09, 2013 8:47 am

Several of us in the Eastern Iowa Diehards group believe there is a need for a local chapter in the Des Moines area to serve the central part of the state. If interested in joining and forming such a group, please send a PM to get things started. A few of us from the Eastern Iowa Diehards would be pleased to attend your first meeting, share our experiences, and offer suggestions about getting started. Send a PM if you are interested in joining and possibly leading the new Central Iowa chapter of the Bogleheads.

I - or rather - we would be interested in stepping up to be the local chapter coordinators. However, if it would just be my wife and I who show up out of the 634K population base of the Des Moines Metro Area attending a meeting... :|

Post up if anyone in the Des Moines Area would be interested in having a local chapter up and running! If we get a few interested, and get the word out - we're in.

From the posts above, it sounds like you've got at least five Bogleheads who are interested in getting the Chapter going and meeting. The only way to tell if it's going to be successful is to get it started.

PM me and we'll get things started.

OK, CyclingDuo has stepped up and agreed to be the new coordinator for the Des Moines Local Chapter.

His contact information is: DesMoinesBogleheads@mediacombb.net

You can use this Local Chapters sub forum to communicate with each other.

Good luck to the revitalized Des Moines Bogleheads Local Chapter.

Feedback request: Potential Meeting at 2 PM on Sunday, December 17th. Location TBA, but several in mind.

Does that work for those who are interested? Format would be more informal to get acquainted for new members, and set some strategic meeting goals for 2018.
