Greenville, SC Bogleheads - Who's Interested?

Post by Snow Boarder »

Bogleheads,
My name is Colum and recently (8 days ago) I moved to Greenville, SC. I am looking to start up a Greenville Metro Bogleheads chapter for those living in the Upstate SC area. I am trying to get a feel for the level of interest as it stands today.

It doesn't matter if you're a diehard or a newbie, everybody is welcome. Post your name and the town you live in so I can get a sense of the size place I need to schedule for our first meeting. Our 1st meeting will be pretty casual. Introductions etc. If you have never been to a bogleheads meeting before then this is your chance and you don't want to miss out.

Colum is too modest to mention that he built the Detroit Local Chapter into an outstanding unit while he was the Coordinator there.

I'm sure he'll be just as effective in getting a new Local Chapter going here, too.

Good luck to Colum and all the SC Bogleheads.

Mel, thanks for the kind words.

A special thanks goes out to Michelle, Brian, Warren and Jack for continuing DMBH (Detroit Metro Bogleheads) without me. They divided the coordinator role into 4 portions so it is not dependant on just one person. Detroit does have a strong chapter and it will continue to thrive under the new leadership team.

I know this post is 6 months old, but did a local Greenville SC chapter start up? I've recently had some downtime (i.e. unemployed) and I've spent the last month or so reading all kinds of books on investing. I searched out John Bogle's books after watching the Frontline documentary on 401(k) plans, and then found mention of this forum in the Bogleheads' Guide to Retirement Planning.

Good morning. My name is Jim. I also recently moved to Greenville (from northern Virginia). I was always too busy working or traveling to get involved in the DC chapter. But I've got time on my hands and am very interested. Glad to host at my home in Simpsonville, or to travel to your place. Let's get this ball rolling.

I would be interested as well. I am a newbie to all of this so some mentorship and community would be great. My name is JP and if meeting space is needed I am a member of the commerce club. I'm sure I could get a load more people to come if we got this going.

I just recently relocated to the Asheville area from the Midwest (MN). My wife and I would be interested in the Greenville group get together. Has this all together died? Just curious if anyone know of a chapter here in AVL? thanks!

It looks like from this thread and other posts by the OP that there was a GVL BH group:
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=145203&p=2346378#p2346378

However it also appears disbanded. I'm in Greenville, new to Bogleheads, and definitely interested in a local group.

I guess at this point someone appoints themselves coordinator? :o

Two people who declare themselves a group. I don’t think there is an official blessing.

I attend the Minnesota Chapter.
