Western NY Bogleheads Local Chapter Established

Post by Maid of the Mist » Sun Apr 14, 2019 6:55 am

Are there any other Western NY Bogleheads who wish to start a chapter in the area? If there are 4 or 5 others, I will try to set up a meeting locally.

I see there is someone from Niagara Falls and someone from Lewiston. Would a Tonawanda or North Tonawanda meeting location work?

Tomorrow, I will check with the libraries in N Tonawanda, Tonawanda, and Amherst and see if I can reserve a room.

Looks like you've got enough to get a Local Chapter going.

Will the Coordinator PM me with a first name and an email that you'll use just for this purpose (don't use your personal email since it will be public and you don't want spammers to get ahold of it).

Suggest something like WesternNYBogleheads@google.com.

Once I have that info, I'll make it official and add your group and contact info to the Local Chapters Map so others can find and contact you.

You'll be able to use this sub-forum to communicate with each other.

For interested WNY Bogleheads,

I scheduled a room at the Tonawanda Library for our first meeting. The date and time are Saturday, May 11 @ 10:00 AM. Tonawanda Library is located at 333 Main St., Tonawanda, NY. You can contact me at:

WesternNYBogleheads@gmail.com

At this first meeting, I thought we could do an introduction, plan future meeting places, dates, and times, have a brief discussion on Boglehead Philosophy from the Wiki, and finally come up with some topics that the group would like to discuss at future meetings.

Hope to see you there,
Maid of the Mist

Thanks for setting this up! Unfortunately I'll be out of town this weekend, but I'll look forward to joining a future meeting.

It's official. Karen (Maid of the Mist) has stepped up and agreed to be the Western NY Bogleheads Local Chapter Coordinator, so your group is Local Chapter 83. I'll add your group and contact information to the Local Chapters Map so others can find and contact you.

Feel free to communicate with each other right here about meeting dates, locations, agendas, ideas, etc.

The group email address is WesternNYBogleheads@gmail.com

All the best to our latest Local Chapter!

I've been a long time viewer of this site but never a poster. I needed to post now that there is a chapter in Western New York! Very exciting! See you all soon.
