Thanks to everyone who came out to the last meeting! I just realized that we neglected to select a topic for the next meeting. Feel free to post any suggestions here or e-mail me at atlantabogleheads at {Google's e-mail service}.

The next gathering will be held Saturday, April 8. Location and time are TBD. We are going with a slightly different approach and this will be a social rather than a typical meeting. Of course, we will talk finances but that's not the primary objective. I'm thinking a potluck brunch unless the majority prefer meeting at a restaurant.

Just found the board and I obviously missed the meet up in April. Any plans for the next gathering?

Thanks.

Is there anyone who is willing to take over as the coordinator for the Atlanta group? I recently started a new job which requires more business travel so life has gotten busy for me.

Steph,

Congratulations on your new job.

I would suggest sending an email to the group. I don't know how often everyone checks to see if people are replying to this thread.

After a long break, the Atlanta Bogleheads have started meeting again.

If you are interested in being on the mailing list, please email:
atlantabogleheads at gmail dot/period com
Our last meeting was on 2018-01-27, from 10:00 to 13:00, at 4 Rivers Smokehouse, 822 Marietta St NW, Atlanta, GA 30318.

We discussed the backdoor Roth IRA, and tips about improving residential energy efficiency (water, electricity, lighting, heating, cooling).

Probably we will meet every one or two months.

Winston
(coordinator of Atlanta Bogleheads)

The next meeting:

2018-05-12
10:00-12:00 (or 13:00)
4 Rivers Smokehouse, second floor
822 Marietta St NW
Atlanta GA 30318

I will talk about some of the new tax laws, and people can bring up other topics to talk about. Around 11, we can order lunch downstairs, and resume the meeting upstairs.

About parking:

--- See your GPS map. 4 Rivers is between Marietta St NW and Means St NW. Park in the big parking lot (partially covered by trees) between 4 Rivers and Means St NW. You can access the parking lot from Marietta St NW (near 4 Rivers and Thumbs Up Diner), or from Means St NW, near where it intersects Marietta St NW.

--- Warning: If you come from Marietta St NW, there is a small parking lot near Thumbs Up Diner, but do not park there. Drive across the small parking lot, and park in the big parking lot. The small parking lot might have a valet.

I'm interested in joining the ATL BH's as well. I can't make June 23, but perhaps the next one will work out for me.
