Great idea! I'm in!

Would still love live meetings as well, cause it's nice to meet great local likeminded people.

The creativity and community of people in the Boglehead community is amazing, and something I am proud to be a part of.

Someone mentioned livestreaming the annual event as well. T

This would be a fabulous idea to include many more people.

Hi, I am definitely interested as well, will shoot you an email, however is it possible to do this at the annual conference so that those who were not able to go can listen in on some of the segments? Even if there is a small fee, might be of interest to make it worthwhile? Thanks.

Hi folks,
It has been a little bit, but I did want to announce a meeting for the Virtual Bogleheads group on 11/9 at 8pm EST on Safe Withdrawal Rates by Willthrill! We're excited to have Willthrill present, and the meeting will be recorded for individuals who can't attend!

Email me at virtualbogleheads@gmail.com if you would like to join the group. I'll send out another reminder email later today.

And our blog is listed in my signature, if you would like to view past presentations as well as boglehead resources.

Thanks,
Manny (lazylarry)

It's been a few months, but excited to announce our next presentation. Hope to see everyone there! We will have a new presentor - David Jay will be presenting "Can I retire? A simple evaluation with “Stages of Retirement” on Monday February 25th at 8pm EST. I think this is great topic that we actually haven't covered fully yet.

Attended my first virtual Bogleheads meeting. So much better than driving 45 minutes or more each way to a physical meeting.

Would like to thank David for presenting Can I retire? A simple evaluation with “Stages of Retirement".

Well thought out plan. Learned about some techniques to look at that were probably on the site at one time but missed by me.

The most profound point was how Boglehead techniques can be simple, effective and teachable.

Thanks again to David Jay and Manny (lazylarry)

Hey folks!

Excited to announce our next presentation. Hope to see everyone there! We will have a well known discussant on the bogleheads forum - sscritic will be presenting "You Too Can Read Official Documents” on Tuesday June 25th at 8pm EST. The topics will encompass a variety of nuances/common misconceptions about common investment processes and vehicles, e.g. required withholding on IRA/401k withdrawals or who can open a traditional IRA. While not as general as our typical topics, I think these might be valuable specific insights from a speaker with a great deal of knowledge who uses evidence-based sources such as IRS publications.

If you are interested in joining the group, email me at virtualbogleheads@gmail.com.

Thanks!
Manny

Thanks to everyone for organizing the latest Virtual On-Line meeting. It was quite helpful in learning how to more accurately read the IRS documents, and to find the right publications in the first place. Many good tips. :happy

I enjoyed and appreciated the presentation by sscritic and would like to thank Manny for his organizing the meeting.

And Miriam did ask a very good question and I learned something from sscritic’s reply.

Anyone knows if meetings for this online chapter are still on? I haven't seen announcements in a while and so wondering.

Hey sorry, I've been slacking off. But yes, would folks be interested in a regular meeting?
I'm thinking if I set some dates (e.g. every 3 months) then I'll be more likely to stick to it:
How about:
4/7 @ 8pm
7/14 @ 8pm
10/6 @ 8pm
12/15 @ 8pm
All eastern standard time
If folks are interested, I'll set these up, and we could do meetings. Anybody interested in presenting? We could do a coronavirus topic (or something non-coronavirus to get people's mind off of it)?

Sorry to be "that guy", but I suspect you mean eastern time, not eastern standard time. The first three of those would be eastern daylight time.
