Looking forward to this starting back up. I'll volunteer to take notes so we can post them here after for everyone to see.

Lets come up with some topics, besides Covid-19
Cheap Loans (Car, home,etc)
Asset Allocation- are you staying the course?
Crackdown/slowdown on "churning" credit cards.

Please post up some additional topics.

I think the potential Social Security cuts beginning between 2029 to 2034 is of concern.
How to handle the cut.

Great meeting last night. Thanks for setting it up HoosierJim!

There was some great discussion on home/auto/student loans, asset allocation, and long term impacts of COVID-19.

For our next meeting a few topics of interest include: critiques of investment plans (for those willing to share), favorite bogleheads threads/posts and/or wiki pages/tools, as well as some discussion about prioritizing investments (based on the wiki page).

I enjoyed the virtual meeting for the Chicago chapter the other day. Would love for a bunch of people to participate and offer their perspectives. The more voices the more people can learn. i encourage people thinking about participating to take the next step and contact HoosierJim and get on the email list for the next meeting. No question is not worth asking. We are all learning.
