Hopefully someone from that Chapter will chime in and let us all know what the status of that Local Chapter is. Sometimes the coordinator moves away or is not able to continue and no one picks up the ball to keep the chapter going. Often, the coordinator or chapter members will let me know and I'm able to get someone to step up. In this case, I got no notification of what's going on, so hopefully your post will get a response that will shed some light on the matter.

I didn't realize there was a Hampton Roads Chapter.

Thanks! I'm in Virginia Beach, VA and I was going to start a local FIRE meetup using meetup.com but then heard about bogleheads chapters and was excited to see a Hampton Roads, VA chapter but the site link doesn't work and email is getting undelivered. Hopefully someone can chime in. It'd be great to get together with other like minded individuals.

May be we can get someone from Edward Jones to act as a coordinator. :happy

How much interest is there in restarting the Hampton Roads chapter? I think I read somewhere we need at least 5 members.

Sounds like there's enough interest to get the Local Chapter back up and running. All we need is for one of you to step up and agree to be the Local Chapter Coordinator. All that person has to do is communicate with members about meeting dates, times, locations, agenda items, etc. Doesn't require an investing guru.

If anyone's interested, PM me and we'll get the ball rolling.

Best regards,

Mel

Yes, this was one of the earlier Local Chapters (see #11). If you get no response and would like to take over as the Local Chapter Coordinator and get it up and running again, let me know via PM.

Let me know via PM if you get the Virginia Beach group started and I'll add your group and contact info to the Local Chapters Map so others can find and contact you.

The Hampton Roads Bogleheads® local chapter group page has been updated. See Hampton Roads Bogleheads®. Subscribers are welcome. I have attempted to provide resources to assist in activating a local chapter.

I'm definitely interested! Greetings fellow Bogleheads! I'm new. Sorry it took so long to find you guys, but I'm here and ready. What do we need to do to bring this chapter back to life? Including me, how many Hampton Roads members are there? Please feel free to reach out to me to assist. Thanks.

Apple14,

You may be waiting (as I have) for awhile to find a meeting or activity for this chapter. If you or anyone else is interested in getting together for dinner to chat Boglehead topics, I'm game.

I live on the peninsula and would be willing to meet in the middle somewhere.

Private message if interested.

Cheers
