Hey!

I'm also in the Nashville area. If either of you (or others who may be interested and lurking) would like to, I'm interested in meeting up.

All you need is a couple of more Nashville-area Bogleheads to chime in and one of you to agree to be the Local Chapter coordinator and I'll set you up as a new Local Chapter. (The coordinator doesn't have to be an investing guru. Rather, he/she just communicates with the members right here on the Local Chapters sub-forum regarding meeting dates, times, locations, agendas, etc.)

If anyone is interested in being the Nashville Local Chapter Coordinator, please contact me via PM with a name and email address you want to use for this purpose. (I recommend something specific for this purpose, such as NashvilleBogleheads at gmail dot com since it will be added to the public Local Chapters Map so others can find you.)

It's official. Jupiter Jones has stepped up and agreed to be the Middle TN Local Chapter coordinator. You can chat with each other here on this sub-forum or you can contact Jupiter at MidTNBogleheads@gmail.com.

Good luck to the Nashville and Middle TN Bogleheads.

[Thread merged into here, see below. --admin LadyGeek]

Hello Folks,

I'm the coordinator for the (somewhat) recently-minted Middle Tennessee Bogleheads Chapter. I think there used to be a Nashville chapter several years ago, but it doesn't seem to be active... so we're giving it another shot and expanding to outlying areas.

Anyone interested in joining for an informal meeting, just post here or shoot some email to MidTNBogleheads@gmail.com.

We can discuss where/when works best for everyone.

Thanks!

:sharebeer

- JJ

Jupiter,
I was a member of a group of about five or six here in Nashville area the got together quite a while back (seems like about 8 to 10 years ago), but nothing ever came of it. Seems like we met a few times at IHOP near Harding and Nolensville Roads if I remember. I'm an older retiree and would consider meeting again.

^^^ To keep things organized, I merged the first thread into here and fixed the title.

This thread is now in the wiki: Bogleheads® local chapters (Local chapters)

Not the right place but I thought I might try. Does anybody have suggestions for an accountant in Memphis to help with business setup and ongoing taxes? I'm moving to Tennessee later this year and don't want to establish a relationship with an accountant here that I'll have to move away from.

Alright, let's do this! I apologize for not giving the chapter the attention it needs, but with everyone's help, we can at least get the ball rolling.

For inspiration, info on local chapters in general may be found on the wiki: https://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Boglehe ... l_chapters

Step one: Let's start floating some ideas on where to meet.

This could be a restaurant, bar, or coffeehouse to begin with, if we're not that large of a group and just need to brainstorm future plans for the chapter. For a larger group, or more formal meetings/presentations, we could go with a meeting room at a public facility (park, library, community center). Or maybe a rec room at someone's condo/apartment complex. That sort of thing.

A central location would be ideal as well. Also consider handicap accessibility, parking availability, public transit options, etc.

I'll start by suggesting a branch library meeting room, such as, say, the one at the Green Hills library. These are available free to non-profits, so we'd have to be able to prove a legitimate association with the John C. Bogle Center for Financial Literacy (the "parent" non-profit that supports this forum and owns the Boglehead(tm) trademark). Can we do that? We'd also need the group to have at least five people. https://library.nashville.org/service/b ... ting-rooms

If we wanted to go the restaurant route, maybe the Gerst Haus? Mainly because they always seem to have large tables available. Well, that and other reasons. :sharebeer

Please add your thoughts and suggestions!

I'm in also! Another option for a meeting place would be Woody's Steak House on Gallatin road north of Rivergate. We can use it for free most evenings (family connection). They have a party room we could use conveniently located next to the bar. Just another option. Let's get the word out and start this up. We can figure out what we're doing as we go!

I just received word that Gerry, the Local Chapter coordinator for this Chapter, has moved and will no longer be functioning as the leader of this Local Chapter.

I'm looking for someone to step up and agree to be the new Local Coordinator. That person doesn't have to be an investment guru. Rather, the Local Coordinator communicates with the members about meeting dates, times, locations and agendas.

If anyone would like to step up, please PM me with your name and an email address that you'll use for this purpose and I'll have the new information added to the Local Chapters Map so others can find and contact you.

Is it possible to join a chapter from abroad? I'm stationed overseas, but have family in Nashville. Would love to meet up when I come home for leave if possible.

Cheers,

I am in the Brentwood area near I-65. Was part of the initial group many years ago that never got off the ground. Think we met once just to chat if I remember correctly. Would be interested in talking/meeting. Am retired and been with Vanguard for about twenty years.
