  • Meeting ID: 783 5919 1756
  • Meeting password: Copy and paste the text between the underscores: __0xGgH5_____

@stup123: Thank you for asking about the next meeting. (Possibly it would be too much short notice for people to meet this Saturday. Next Saturday might be better.)

All,

If you wish to still attend the Zoom meeting---I changed the options so that participants can skip the waiting room and can join before the host (me). Feel free to talk about anything that interests you.

Sorry. Today, an unexpected event happened. On Saturday, I may not be able to attend. Have fun.

I just found this group. Apparently, one day too late. Was the Sept 12th meeting recorded? Or was the next meeting date announced? I would like to attend.

@ranFIRE,

Welcome! I did not record the recent meeting. I did not announce the next meeting---it might be around one month from now.

We are going to have the next meeting in October. We are going to try a new day of week / time to hopefully allow more of the members to join.

During this session we will be:
  • Answering any questions of the members that join
  • Gathering topic suggestions for future meetings
  • Reviewing some great resources on the Bogleheads Wiki that can sometimes be overlooked.

The Zoom meeting information is listed here:

October 6, 2020 - 7:00pm

Out of curiosity, in the time BC, were there ever in-person meetings, and if so where were they held?
Thanks!

@McDougal,

In your question, does "BC" mean "before coronavirus"?

The last time that Atlanta Bogleheads met in person was in 2018, in June. We had been meeting at:

4 Rivers Smokehouse, second floor
822 Marietta St NW
Atlanta GA 30318
