Western NY Bogleheads Local Chapter Established

Post by Maid of the Mist » Sun Apr 14, 2019 6:55 am

Are there any other Western NY Bogleheads who wish to start a chapter in the area? If there are 4 or 5 others, I will try to set up a meeting locally.

I see there is someone from Niagara Falls and someone from Lewiston. Would a Tonawanda or North Tonawanda meeting location work?

Looks like you've got enough to get a Local Chapter going.

Will the Coordinator PM me with a first name and an email that you'll use just for this purpose (don't use your personal email since it will be public and you don't want spammers to get ahold of it).

Suggest something like WesternNYBogleheads@google.com.

Once I have that info, I'll make it official and add your group and contact info to the Local Chapters Map so others can find and contact you.

You'll be able to use this sub-forum to communicate with each other.

For interested WNY Bogleheads,

I scheduled a room at the Tonawanda Library for our first meeting. The date and time are Saturday, May 11 @ 10:00 AM. Tonawanda Library is located at 333 Main St., Tonawanda, NY. You can contact me at:

WesternNYBogleheads@gmail.com

At this first meeting, I thought we could do an introduction, plan future meeting places, dates, and times, have a brief discussion on Boglehead Philosophy from the Wiki, and finally come up with some topics that the group would like to discuss at future meetings.

Hope to see you there,
Maid of the Mist

Thanks for setting this up! Unfortunately I'll be out of town this weekend, but I'll look forward to joining a future meeting.

It's official. Karen (Maid of the Mist) has stepped up and agreed to be the Western NY Bogleheads Local Chapter Coordinator, so your group is Local Chapter 83. I'll add your group and contact information to the Local Chapters Map so others can find and contact you.

Feel free to communicate with each other right here about meeting dates, locations, agendas, ideas, etc.

The group email address is WesternNYBogleheads@gmail.com

All the best to our latest Local Chapter!

I've been a long time viewer of this site but never a poster. I needed to post now that there is a chapter in Western New York! Very exciting! See you all soon.

Interesting how many of us are from Niagara Co. (add me) or the Northtowns!

Unfortunately, have a conflict for this meeting. Will watch for future ones, though.

I wanted to remind folks that our first meeting of the WNY Bogleheads will be Saturday at 10AM. I have reserved the main room at the Tonawanda Library located at 333 Main St. in Tonawanda.

I noticed a couple of folks are unable to attend this meeting but would like to attend future meetings. Please send me an email at WesternNYBogleheads@gmail.com or leave me a message on this board and let me know your preferred meeting days and times and the area you live in. One of our meeting discussions will be on location and time for subsequent meetings - and while we can't please everyone, we will use as much information as we can get to better locate and time our next meeting. So if you are unable to attend, please provide preferred days and times (and days and times you cannot make it also). We will do our best to schedule for the convenience of most folks.

Thanks,

Maid of the Mist

There will be a second meeting of the WNY Bogleheads on July 29 (Monday) at 6pm at the Tonawanda library.

We will have a short presentation on Tax Efficient Fund Placement followed by a discussion on this topic.

We will try out a Monday evening meeting to see if folks prefer this timing versus the Saturday morning.

I hope to see you there.
