fyi, we had another good turnout today - 19 people, and we talked about everything from 401ks and IRAs to taxes and HSAs.

Also, next month we'll be having the meeting on the 3d Sunday of the month, 20 May, as the previous Sunday is Mother's Day.

Hello RM,

I am new to this forum(First Post) and these investing concepts but I am in Columbus, Ohio and would be interested in trying to come to some of your meetings. Is there any way to get the meeting details if you don't join Meetup?

the details for our monthly meetings are in this "New Columbus, Ohio Chapter" thread - on the first page, i.e. normally 2d Sunday of the month from 2-4pm at the Columbus Metropolitan (Main) Library (meeting room 3B), which is located at 96 S. Grant Avenue, Columbus, OH 43215. In May, the meeting will be on 20 May due to Mother's Day the previous Sunday.

All,

Just a reminder about next Sunday's (20 May) meeting - same time, 2-4 at the library. (No meeting tomorrow since it's Mother's Day)

If you have any specific subjects you'd like to have discussed and let others know about ahead of time, please reply with them here as desired - or input them at the Yahoo Group site.

Thanks and see you next Sunday.

We had a great meeting and turnout (17 total) yesterday – lots of good discussion on everything from investing mistakes some of the older members have made to the value of college to some estate planning basics.

As was brought up, we’re going to shift the meeting time to 3-5pm (instead of 2-4) - still on the 2d Sunday of the month at the Columbus Main Library. This is to facilitate going to dinner after the meeting for those interested – we’ll look to do the dinner on a bi-monthly basis – starting in July, then September, November, etc.

On the Columbus Bogleheads Yahoo Group (mentioned above in this thread) is a map from the library of some of the restaurants nearby. I believe there are a number of other places in the area as well. If someone has a suggested restaurant near the library for dinner in July, please respond on the Yahoo Group (or here) with your recommendation.

See everyone next month.
