Hi,

I live in upstate NY (Albany Area) and I am interested in joining a local chapter.

Upstate NY Diehards Local Chapter

Post by Mel Lindauer » Wed May 23, 2007 5:54 pm

Hi technofox:

There's a Diehards Local Chapter in Syracuse. Will that work for you? Here's a link to all the Diehards Local Chapters throughout the country.

http://www.lostsprings.com/diehards/chapters/

If Syracuse is too far for you, then you can always start your own group in Albany. All you need is five or more Diehards who want to get together and one of you who agrees to be the coordinator (the coordinator doesn't have to be a guru. All he/she has to do is organize the meetings and communicate with the members.)

If you get your five members, you can PM me and I'll assign your group the next available Diehards Local Chapter number and add your group to the map. Then you're in business!

Regards,

Mel

Local Chapter

Hi technofox,
I also live in the Albany, NY, area and would be interested to join a local chapter. Syracuse seems to be a similar distance as NYC from Albany, too much for me.

Maybe we should start our own local chapeter. What do you think?

Albany NY Diehards Local Chapter

Post by Mel Lindauer » Tue Nov 27, 2007 7:49 pm

Hi technofox:

Looks like you've got enough interested Diehards. If you (or someone) agrees to be the Local Chapter coordinator, PM me with a name and contact information (suggest a yahoo.com e-mail address for just this purpose) and I'll assign your group the next available Chapter number (#30) and add your group and contact information to the Diehards Local Chapters Map.

Good luck to you and all the Albany Diehards.

Regards.

Mel

I'm also interested in an Albany area chapter. Do we have 5 people yet? Would anyone like to serve as the contact person for getting a group launched?

Sounds like there's enough interest in an Albany Diehards Local Chapter. All we need is someone to step forward and agree to be the coordinator. That person doesn't have to be an investing guru. They simply schedule meeting dates and locations and convey that information to the Chapter members. That can be done right here on this forum.

Anyone volunteering to handle that can PM me or make a post here on this thread.

Regards to all,

Mel
