Hi:

Here is the blog posting of LazyNihilist's summary of the January 22, 2017 South Florida Local Chapter Meeting. We made a few small modifications to the text to fit it for the blog medium and to make the post clearer for a potential general public viewer. Thank you very much for the contribution.

Thank you everyone for such a warm and informative meeting :happy I learned new ideas about investing, it's good to talk about our investing experiences and plans with others. We had 37 Bogleheads and several late-comers who may not have signed in.

The photos are wonderful and they capture the beautiful aquamarine waters of Biscayne Bay out the picture window 8-) Many thanks to Lazy Nihilist and Michael Larimore for posting them. It certainly was a beautiful balmy Miami day.

Taylor - special appreciation for your words of wisdom. We especially enjoy your stories of your investing past; we learn from them, nice historical perspective. :happy

Larry - thank you for keeping our Bogleheads server happy; we go into serious depression without it :wink:

Clevername - great job moderating a large meeting on far-ranging tax topics. We thank your accounting firm, Eisner Amper, for hosting our meeting and providing parking.

Our next meeting might be in May/June 8-)

Is the best way to stay on top of things by checking this forum post or is there a MeetUp page or mailing list that also goes out?

Yes, the best way to stay on top of things is to check this forum thread regularly; there is no other meet-up page. Meetings and locations are posted here. I sent you a PM on Jan 1st and you can PM us if you prefer. You can also contact us on our South Florida Local Chapter gmail - SFLBogleheads@gmail.com

Thank you all for attending the other day! I was very happy to host our first Bogleheads meeting of 2017, and it seems like everyone had a great time. It was great to see everyone again, and meet so many new members too. Looking forward to next time,

Best regards,

Josh


clevername, thanks again for hosting the meeting. It was wonderful to meet everyone and wish Taylor a happy birthday!

as a warning, my credit card was skimmed using the parking meter just South of the building. In case anyone else used that meter, check you statements ASAP.

We are holding our next South Florida local chapter Boglehead meeting in Hollywood and we hope this will be fairly central for Bogleheads from the north, the south, and the west. As South Floridians know, Florida has no east :wink:

Please see above post for the details. Looking forward to another nice meeting :happy

This is my RSVP for one person.

This will be my second year to attend. I got a lot out of last years meeting and am looking forward to this year. In my case this years location is ideal.

Hi South Florida Bogleheads,

Luckily we'll be in town beginning on July 13 and look forward to attending. Add 2 to the list (Winnie and Mary)

Our most pertinent questions have to do with my husband's recent retirement. We are looking for sage words of wisdom from more experienced retirees, not only about finances but also about dealing with the change of lifestyle. I'll probably not retire for 5 years so, therefore I'm having some jitters about what seems to be a high market for my last retirement contributions.

Looking forward to meeting everyone.
