Hi all, happy first day of fall! Time for a poll to choose the date of the October meetup:

Our usual spot is the Sony Atrium at 550 Madison Ave. I'm open to suggestions though.

I'll leave the poll open until next Tues/Wed.

Thanks,
Alice

I'd be interested in attending. Not picky, but would prefer 2nd or 3rd week in October

I actually have my friend that introduced me to Vanguard back in 2004 coming to visit me in NYC this weekend! He's an ex-pat that is now retired in Costa Rica. He will be here for 3 weekends. Would love to attend with him.

At what time are these meetings usually?

We could do Saturdays before 3pm or sundays in the next 3 weekends. Hopefully it fits.

Hi, I live in NYC, although never having a regular schedule. I frequently travel throughout the country. But Yes, as a new investor now earning a good salary. I am definitely interested in a local meeting. Thanks for taking the initiative to create a NYC group..

I'd like to attend the next NYC Bogleheads' meeting in June. Is there anything I need to do besides show up?

Thanks,

Greg

I have not posted in this forum before, and I just made my account, but I am interested in the meeting. Am I also allowed to just show up nonchalantly?

Any meetups coming soon? I just joined the board, but i've been reading the forums for almost a month now. Is there somewhere else with an active user base like a Facebook group? Thanks all!

Apologies for the late response. We have a Google group but it's not super active - mostly scheduling the meetups. Occasionally people send around articles. You can join it here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/boglehead-nyc
