I live in Miramar (West of 75). I am also yet to attend one of the chapter meetings. Something work related has come up on last minute on last two occasions. Third time may be charm.

Hello South Florida Bogleheads! 8-)

Nice to hear everyone is still learning and investing. As soon as we can get together, we will - and I will post everything here on this thread.

However, several other Bogleheads local chapters are holding zoom meetings and inviting Bogleheads in other areas of the country to join in. You can peruse the "Local Chapters" section of the forum for upcoming meetings.

Also, there is a Bogleheads Virtual On-Line Chapter and their next meeting is July 14, 2020, at 8:00 pm Florida time 8-)

And in case you missed it, here is the link to a wonderful recent webinar "Jack Bogle: The Legacy Less Traveled" honoring our mentor Jack Bogle, posted by forum member Barry Barnitz on his Financial Page - A Bogleheads Blog

Our South Florida local chapter email is SFLbogleheads@gmail.com - please feel free to gmail me or PM me here on the forum.

Taylor zooms around in his sailing club online meetings and I suspect he disengages his mute to maintain control of the tiller/mic :D
So you're saying you can, indeed, teach an old dog new tricks, huh Miriam?

Hello South Florida Bogleheads 8-)

Our neighbor local chapter, the Tampa Bay Bogleheads, have invited us to join them for their next zoom meeting -

Tues. Oct. 20, 2020 from 7:00-9:00 pm

:?: To RSVP for this online meeting, please send me an email at our local chapter gmail - SFLBogleheads@gmail.com or a PM (private message) and I will send you the zoom link to access the meeting. It is not necessary to join the Tampa BH to access this meeting.


The Tampa chapter has a nice meeting planned.
-- they will start the meeting with a discussion of the topics covered in the recent ChooseFI webinar that featured Rick Ferri, Larry Swedroe, and Paul Merriman. It was an excellent discussion on many investing topics.
-- plus we'll have a casual open Q&A period on whatever topics you wish to discuss

Here are the links for the replay of the Ferri, Swedroe, Merriman video (there are 2 parts due to technical difficulties)

First part (duration 1:11:00)... https://www.facebook.com/watch/live/?v= ... _permalink
Second part (duration 57:30)... https://www.facebook.com/watch/live/?v= ... _permalink

And here is a Bogleheads thread by Rick Ferri on this video. www.bogleheads.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=327207

Sleepysurf, the Tampa chapter coordinator, does a great job moderating his online meetings and we should have a very nice and interesting discussion :happy

Please let me know if you have any questions!
Chapter coordinator,

Taylor told some pretty exciting sailing tales this week!

I’m wondering if the Tampa Zoom meeting was recorded? The time difference made it impossible to attend without disturbing my husband’s sleep.

Hi South Florida Bogleheads and our Snowbirds up north 8-)

Our Oct zoom meeting with the Tampa Bogleheads Chapter was a great success, we had over 36 participants and we covered many interesting personal finance topics. Thank you for coming, Taylor, we enjoyed hearing your years-of-experience opinions and your participation made the meeting even more special :happy

Sleepysurf, the Tampa Chapter coordinator, conducted a great meeting and we thank Tampa for inviting us to join them.
sleepysurf wrote: Thu Oct 22, 2020 9:24 am Thanks to all who participated in our Oct meeting, with special thanks to Miriam2 for getting the South Florida Chapter involved (and stepping up to help "herd cats" during the Zoom session). It was a special treat to have Taylor Larimore and everybody else share their perspectives. We'll likely schedule our next meeting mid-Dec, before the holidays. Until then, wishing everybody the best!
Again, we thank everyone, including our South Florida snowbirds from up north, who came, we enjoy herding cats! and I'm sure we all enjoyed our spirited and heart-felt personal finance discussions 8-)

The zoom meetings are not recorded.

All meetings are posted on this South Florida Chapter thread, so please monitor this for future meetings :happy
