Any interest in a Shelby/Jefferson County AL chapter?

Post by Housedoc » Thu Jun 21, 2018 4:03 pm

No activity for "Central Alabama" chapter for years. I live in North Shelby County, 15 miles south of Birmingham, AL.
Any activities or meetings for this area currently?

I live in Vestavia Hills, AL. New to Bogleheads board. Wonder if there are other folks in the B'ham area?

Seems you and I are it..... Any chance you are the same fellow on HoneyBee Brinkers blog? Stinky is his name also. I guess I will just keep going to free dinners with advisors and just say no at the end. I try for 1 free meal a month. Buddy at gym and his wife join us.

Yes, I'm the same "Stinky" who posts on Honeybee Brinker's blog. I subscribed to the newsletter for a number of years, and Brinker's advice in 2000 and 2003 which I partially followed (got out in 2000, got back in in 2003) was good for me. But Honeybee's blog has opened my eyes to everything else, and I find more value in other sources like Bogleheads than paying for Brinker newsletter.

Three of us have posted here now on this thread. Maybe if we keep this conversation going we can get a few other folks from the Birmingham area to reveal themselves too.

If you get two more folks interested and one of you agrees to be the Local Chapter Coordinator, we can get your Chapter up and running.

Hopefully we can keep this thread going, and maybe two more Birmingham area folks will make themselves known.

I'll volunteer to be Coordinator, with my primary qualification being that I live about half-way between the two folks who have already identified themselves (North Shelby, Oneonta).

I live in Vestavia and would be interested, but have to admit that I'm not sure what a local chapter does. Is it an in-person version of this board?

I'll add that one thing I really like about this board is anonymity. So, I guess my question is what is the value of a local chapter?

I was hoping we could get 10-15 people interested in meeting for lunch every couple of months. Discuss financial as well as other topics.
I don't think a few fine folks would justify forming a chapter. We will see how many more jump on board in the next month or so...

Even if we don't get to 10-15 people, I would enjoy having lunch every month or two with like-minded investors. Whether we have a "chapter" or not is secondary to me. If we could get a core group of 5 people or so, I think that would be great. It would be interesting to see how much we have in common.

Birmingham area folks, are there more of you out there in Bogleland?

Birmingham area folks, are there more of you out there in Bogleland?
Here are two recent threads about creating and maintaining local chapters that might be useful.

Local Chapters-What to Discuss/What's the Point?
Improving Local Boglehead Chapter Meetings

Here's a thread from several years ago with Bogleheads from the Huntsville, Alabama, area. Maybe they're still around, looking for fellow Bogleheads :happy it's not that far from Birmingham, is it? Our South Florida chapter has Bogleheads who drive down from Orlando (4 hours), up from Key Largo (1-2 hours) and over from Naples and Venice (2-3 hours). So far, no one has come over the pond from the east :mrgreen:

From what I've heard, most chapters and our South Florida Chapter all preserve anonymity. You can use your real name or your Boglehead name and communicate through PM or local chapter email - your preference. When we put our group photos on our local chapter thread, everyone knows ahead of time that if they don't want to be on the forum, don't get in the picture 8-)

Looks we have a few more in the Birmingham area. Here are the folks who have posted on this thread (in reverse order of when you first posted):

Blackfish - Vestavia
Chiadog2000 - Homewood
Juggafun - north Shelby
Marti038 - Vestavia
Madmax - Oneonta
Stinky - Vestavia
Housedoc - north Shelby

It looks like we're centered in the Vestavia/Homewood area, with two in north Shelby and one in Oneonta. Are there more folks out there in the Birmingham area who would be interested in getting together?

Let me throw out an idea for a place for a first meeting, if enough folks are interested in doing that. We could go someplace public, like a Starbucks or a Panera. Or, maybe even better, the food court at Riverchase Galleria. As to the things that we might talk about, look at Miriam2's excellent post earlier in this thread.

Any thoughts? And any more folks out there?

Meeting at Galleria food court sounds good. I am not a Starbucks fan. I know, I am the only person that feels this way! HA.
We have some vacations lined up so hopefully I will be around to attend. Maybe mid August after kids are back in school and shopping frenzy is over.

Looks like there's enough interest to get a Local Chapter going. If we have a volunteer who agrees to be the Local Chapter Coordinator, send me a message via PM and we'll make it official and get your group on the Local Chapters map so others can find and contact you.

I am a financial newbie. After a financial disaster I'm in as much recovery as I'm going to be able to accomplish. I am a 67 year old in Vestavia, Alabama. I would like to meet w the group. Thanks, Mimi

We had some activity on this thread last summer. It looked like there are a few folks in the Birmingham area who might be interested in getting together. But we never got a first meeting off the ground.

Now, we've had two new folks (Mimi2 and Theridge) say that they're interested in getting together. So I'll repost the names and locations of folks who have already posted on this thread. Maybe other folks will stick their hands up too.

Theridge - Hoover
Mimi2 - Vestavia
Blackfish - Vestavia
Chiadog2000 - Homewood
Juggafun - north Shelby
Marti038 - Vestavia
Madmax - Oneonta
Stinky - Vestavia
Housedoc - north Shelby

Maybe we could shoot to get together some Saturday or Sunday afternoon in January, somewhere in the Hoover/Vestavia area. I suggested Panera in Vestavia or the Galleria food court, but other suggestions are definitely welcomed.

Please respond if you're interested in getting together.

Bumping for visibility.

I'll suggest two dates for a possible first meeting of this group - Sunday, January 27 or Sunday, February 10. 2pm, Riverchase Galleria food court.

I will send a private message to each person listed above, asking whether they can make a meeting and have a preference for a date. Any others in the Birmingham / North Shelby Alabama area are welcome also - just respond to this message or private message me.

Let's make this into a chapter!

Housedoc -

Trust me, we feel your pain after the Tide loss last Monday. Nice that you can escape to South Florida. I'm jealous!

Others -

We are up to three folks who can meet on the dates mentioned above - either Sunday January 27 or Sunday February 10. What about others in the Birmingham, AL area?

We will meet 2pm Sunday January 27 at Riverchase Galleria food court. The first of (hopefully) many meetings.

Three of us are confirmed so far. We need to get to five to officially form a chapter!

Hey Everyone,

Stinky, Littleridge and I met up at the Galleria today for a little over an hour. We discussed how we became Bogleheads, various financial matters, books, podcasts and life in the greater Birmingham area among other things. We had a great time (or at least I did) and are planning to meet again in a month or two. We will throw a few dates out soon and we hope more will be able to join!

I agree, we had a good initial meeting last Sunday. It's amazing how much we had in common! Looking forward to our next meeting.

We'd really enjoy having anyone else in the Birmingham, Alabama area join us. We're real people, just like you.

Let me know if you'd like to become an "official" Local Chapter and be added to the Local Chapters Map so others can find and contact you.

I need one person to agree to be the Local Chapter coordinator (looks like we already have someone doing that work, so just contact me).

If interested, just PM me with your first name and an email address that you'll use for this purpose (suggest something like ShelbyJeffersonALBogleheads@gmail.com.

Hello Everyone,

User Stinky and I met on 3/17 as planned. Users Housedoc and Littleridge had to back out at the last minute but I believe still plan on attending the next meeting.

Stinky and I had a great time. We discussed personal finance, current events, economic theory, interesting bogleheads forum threads among other things. We mentioned meeting again in May/June. We will post a few dates in here closer to meeting time to see which date works the best for everyone.

Hope you all can join!

We'll meet again on Sunday, April 28, at 4pm, at the Riverchase Galleria food court. I'll be the guy wearing the green shirt.

Hopefully we can get our attendance up to 5 so we can be a "real" chapter!

Please reach out to me through the Board or private message if you'd like more details.
Looking forward to it!
