Here I'm following up on tidalwave10's suggestion in http://www.bogleheads.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=133110 to create a master thread for the RTP, North Carolina Bogleheads chapter. Per tidalwave10 this can be:
"a single Master Thread for posting meeting notices to. This way, anyone interested can Subscribe to the Master Thread and be notified when there's activity. This wouldn't preclude posting individual meeting announcements, e.g. Meeting #3, Meeting #4, etc. But I think the former is more efficient and effective.
This would be helpful in cases where:
1) Someone may be interested in joining a local Chapter but has not yet made contact (e.g. is not on an email distribution list, etc)
2) Who doesn't regularly check the Local Chapters forum for meeting announcements from their local Chapter
3) And where the local Chapter doesn't have a Web Page where meeting announcements are made (e.g. the Raleigh / RTP Chapter doesn't seem to have a web page)"
Also FYI for those local 'heads not already on the list, I set up a Yahoo "rtpbogleheads" email list for our local chapter. Please consider joining the list to help our chapter communications (see below for joining details). From the group's description:
rtpbogleheads Yahoo Group Addresses are:Welcome to the yahoo group of the Research Triangle Park, North Carolina Area Bogleheads Chapter. The Bogleheads are an investing and personal finance interest group inspired by the example of Jack Bogle, the founder of the Vanguard mutual fund company.
This list is primarily to foster easy communications among our local chapter members, in particular regarding reminders and logistics on upcoming meetings which we hope to hold approximately quarterly. All are encouraged to continue use the national forum (bogleheads.org) for most postings.
Please stick to the spirit of the national chapter's forum policies and etiquette: basically, keep to investing topics and stay away from politics. Further details on posting etiquette can be found here: http://www.bogleheads.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=405
Initially this list will be configured to allow through all member postings in an un-moderated fashion, though adjustments may be made later as deemed appropriate by the list manager.
If you're interested to know of other local Boglehead chapters, please see the Google Map maintained by Mel Lindauer at http://www.lostsprings.com/diehards/chapters/

Meantime I'll probably continue to set up a new topic for each local chapter meeting, but will do my best to send a reminder to this topic as well in order to benefit RTP area Bogleheads who would like to subscribe to this topic.
Thanks & best wishes,
