[When will 2018 Bogleheads Conference Announcement be Made?]

Post by swedek » Wed Jan 17, 2018 1:35 am

Hello,

When will the 2018 Bogleheads Conference be announced this year?

Thank you!

[NOTE: I modified the thread title. Otherwise folks would have thought that it was the official Conference announcement. - Mel ]

Where would I find info on this year’s conference? I did a search but didn’t find it. I was too late last year.

Swimmer - I merged your post into the on-going discussion.

An announcement will be made in the forum.

So far, nothing has been posted for the 2018 conference.

If anyone could make a note on this thread when they see it if posted elsewhere it would really be appreciated! I have a notification configured on this thread to get updates when a note is added here but not sure if possible to do something similar in the main forum. Hope to get a space this year! :)

Stay tuned for my forum announcement in early March.

Act immediately (if not sooner) if you want a spot. We sold out in less than two days last year and we just may beat that record this year since the time to sellout gets shorter each year.

Procrastinate for even a bit and you're probably going to get shut out.

I'd like to (very respectfully, I hope) point out two things that went somewhat awry with last year's announcement.

(1) For months, it had been "known" that the announcement would be made on April 5, but it ended up being made on April 2. While I sort-of understand what happened, this had a negative effect on some people who are good planners but had not been expecting the announcement yet.

(2) The announcement was made on the Investing Theory forum but not (initially) on the Bogleheads Community forum. I humbly request that, if the announcement is made on some other forum, it be mirrored at the same time in the Bogleheads Community forum.

Thanks!

Looking forward to this year.

There will be the usual pre-announcement for the sign up date? I, and I think most others, find repetitive checking really detrimental to attention and focus (any current/former active stock watcher can attest).

The issue last year, as I understood, was there was no cap on the early alumni signups so the public date had to be moved up. That being solved I see no reason any date issues would occur again. I assume from past conversation the early alumni registration has either been capped or removed.
