Arizona Chapter

Post by mabromovitz » Thu Apr 12, 2018 12:27 pm

Hello All,

I am interested in starting up the Arizona Chapter again. Michael LeBoeuf, one of the authors of The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing, said he would also have an interest in joining if enough people are interested. He would be a great resource and I think this group could really excel. Any interested Bogleheads out there? If so, I'll put something together so we can all meet.

Best,
Mark

I'm interested, and I will travel from Payson. Consider having meetings in multiple locations to match the better seasons, to attract those who aren't as interested in traveling. I think there are two BHs in Prescott, or maybe one of those was in Flagstaff, and someone else once mentioned Green Valley, south of Tucson. Anyone who is only lurking here is also welcome at any meeting.

Prescott, AZ.
Will drive to Scottsdale, upper Scottsdale, etc.
Or, come up to Prescott where it is cooler and picturesque.

We all learn the secret 3-fund fist-bump.

But no, on a serious note, I have no clue. Would just hope for some good conversation and mutual learning from similar people.

Somewhere in Greater Phoenix is the logical place to hold chapter meetings. The population of AZ is 7 million and 4.7 million live in Greater Phoenix.

As for how meetings can be conducted, that's for the group to decide if/when we get started. Here are some suggestions:

Looks like we have sufficient interest to put a group together. I'll set something up in Phoenix for May and will get back with everyone shortly.

Thanks,
Mark
