Great! We need five total (including me) to start a chapter. Encourage your friends to sign up. I'll keep you posted on our progress.

I live in Hunterdon County, would happily meet in Hunterdon/Somerset/Middlesex areas.

I have been planning on going to the Philly meetup, but haven't made it yet.

I was the coordinator of the old NJ chapter, which no longer exists because I left NJ. New Jersey chapter needs new coordinator is an old thread on which some people had expressed interest.

If you do get a chapter started, I can turn over the ownership of the chapter mailing list to the new coordinator.

June 22, 2018 • EDISON, NJ — Stephen Colbert has taken on some fairly controversial topics during his tenure at "The Late Show," but last night's episode might be his most controversial yet, at least among New Jerseyans: Does Central Jersey exist?

Anyone live near Bridgewater? I don't live in Somerset County anymore so don't have a valid library card to reserve the room. But, I was thinking we could reserve a room at the Somerset County Library near the Mall as a good place to start in a central place, later we could choose a restaurant, etc.

I would suggest a Saturday if possible.

I live in Franklin Township, Somerset County. Not sure if that helps. There is a Township library; I've never been but I could go get a card & some info.

Hello NJ Bogleheads:

I'm pleased to report that we have a new Coordinator for the Central NJ Local Chapter. Here's the contact info:
I am reaching out to volunteer as the Central NJ chapter coordinator (assuming it's still available). I created a gmail account for communications - bhcentralnj@gmail.com.

Best,

I have attended prior CNJ meetups last year. The last was mid November. Tentatively, mid January was proposed, but nothing heard from the mailing list. I too have had my ears open.

I see Tamarron12 hasn't been active here for ~2 months. I hope she hasn't resigned as coordinator.

Hey Grabiner. I'm no longer in NJ, but attended one meeting of the NJ chapter around 2006 or so. You were there. So was a member called "wastenot" who I think had worked for the NYC library. The meeting was held at a restaurant somewhere in North Jersey. Since other former NJ-ers chimed in, I thought I would as well.
