There's a local NJ chapter which meets in Princeton. Too far for me, but I believe it's called "central new Jersey" chapter.

Hello,

Is there a NYC Chapter? If so, where and when does it meet?

If not, is there a NJ Chapter, when and when does it meet?

I live in lower Westchester and would be very happy to attend a meeting.

Sincerely,

HC

Hi everyone,

I'm excited to announce that Bruce Steiner has graciously agreed to hold a presentation on wills and estate planning at our next Bogleheads meeting. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
  • Date: Wednesday, February 5
  • Time: 6-7:30pm (please arrive 5:30-6 if possible so we can start on time)
  • Location: Lower level community room, Capital One cafe building @ 853 Broadway, New York, NY 10003 (southwest corner of 14th St and Broadway)
  • The street level is the Capital One Cafe. Walk to the interior glass door along the side wall where there's a staircase to go down to the lower level.
Hope to see you there!

Hi HC, yes, there is a NYC chapter that meets approximately every 2 months to every quarter. Recently we have been meeting at the Capital One cafe near Union Square. I will post updates to this thread, and you can also join the Google group here to get email notifications: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/boglehead-nyc

Awesome! Bruce is an outstanding resource. He knows a thing or two about estate planning. :wink:

Hello Flying Penguin,

I am happy to hear there is a NYC Chapter and that you will meet on Feb 5, but I regret I will not be able to attend. I will be in Boston on that date . I will have to wait for your next meeting.

I would have dearly loved to have heard the presentation on wills and estate planning,

**ROOM CHANGE for our next meeting!**

We will now be meeting in the lower level community room, the same room we've used in the past. (The street level is the Capital One Cafe. Walk to the interior glass door along the side wall where there's a staircase to go down to the lower level.) I've updated the original post.

Sorry you can't make it! We're hoping to have a repeat session on wills later in the year.

Hi everyone,
Hope everyone is staying safe. We are planning on holding a virtual NYC Bogleheads meeting via Zoom in April. Please fill out this Doodle poll to indicate your availability. A weeknight meeting would be held 6-8pm; a weekend meeting would be held 2-4pm.

https://doodle.com/poll/ybty2dq2te2mvbkq

I will be closing the poll tonight.

Our next meeting will be held Monday, April 6, at 6-8pm via Zoom. (Tomorrow!) I will be editing this post to provide the link shortly before 6pm. Most will see a popup and be asked to download a small program at that time which should only take a few seconds. If you want, you can download the program in advance, using the first link at this site: https://zoom.us/download. But no one needs to have a personal Zoom account or password/login.

Here is the link and password for our 6pm meeting today. Note it is Zoom branded as "Ring Central."

For those that were able to participate, thanks for your time and contributions! All in all I thought it went relatively well. It's always nice to be in the same room and see your faces and shake your hands, etc. But we can't so....

Let us know if anyone has/had any particular concerns/criticisms or suggestions for later. Should we do this again?

Why not use Google Hangout, Skype or Whatapp?

The downloaded software did not bring up any usable prompts, I kept staring into blank screen. Was on PC Laptop, Windows 10.

I live in Westchester and would not normally come to NYC for a meeting but would be happy to attend via Zoom. I'll watch this thread for future meetings.

BTW RIngcentral downloaded its own software when I clicked on your link, and it looked different from the usual Zoom software I've been using. It also appears from a press release that they are switching to their own service instead of just using Zoom.

Hi everyone,

Please vote for the dates that work for you for our May and June virtual meetings which will be held via Zoom/RingCentral. A weeknight meeting would be held 6-8pm; a weekend meeting would be held 2-4pm. More info about the topics of each meeting below.

May: https://doodle.com/poll/r2uk6qb2a66gz2bm
June: https://doodle.com/poll/zrc4n4f4ruy4572s

May meeting: Personal finance basics for the complete novice

Sotirios Keros will present a version of an "introduction to personal finance" talk he's been giving to graduating students and early-career accumulators. The talk is designed to seed a range of important topics into a beginning audience, for self-education and future exploration. However, there is also high-yield, practical information for those who need vetted advice in order to make quick decisions.

This sample lecture will cover the following topics relatively briefly, depending on time and interest:
-- Investing fees and their impact
-- Asset allocation
-- How to conceptualize a "retirement" that may be decades away
-- Life insurance basics
-- Target Retirement type funds
-- "Warnings" about the financial services industry
-- Introduction to stocks and bonds
-- Roth vs taxable vs tax-deductible investing

The following basic personal finance topics will NOT be covered:
-- Budgeting
-- Debt management
-- Buying vs renting
-- Bitcoin

The goals for this Bogleheads lecture are:
For the novice: Provide useful education for any audience member who may be relatively early in their personal finance journey and overall understanding
For the expert: Provide an example in hopes that it will encourage others to create, modify, and provide similar education to their audience of choice
For the speaker: Provide an opportunity to get feedback in hopes of improving the lecture
For all: Stimulate discussion on a wide range of financial topics for continued learning; Pilot this format to help guide future virtual Boglehead meetings, whether for a covid or post-covid situation

June meeting: Behavioral finance
An interactive discussion on behavioral finance with potential for a TBD guest speaker.

Thanks!

Hi everyone, please vote in this poll to schedule our next NYC Bogleheads meeting. It'll be our first in person meeting in over 2 years! We're planning to have it on a Sunday at 2pm in July or early August. The location will be in Manhattan, exact location TBD. Open to suggestions for a location.

https://doodle.com/meeting/participate/id/bY6lPJAd

We plan to have (at least) two topics of discussion:

1) The recent market downturn & volatility
2) Discussion about the concepts in the book Die with Zero. Here is a summary: https://summaries.com/blog/die-with-zero
I recently read this book and think it would make for an interesting discussion. Some of the ideas are a bit at odds with the traditional Bogleheads frugality [e.g. the goal should be to spend (or give away) your money during your lifetime - anything left over represents time spent working unnecessarily; spend money on experiences earlier in life rather than waiting til you're older, etc]. I'll give a short summary of the key points for those who haven't read it.

Looking forward to seeing you in person soon.

Thanks,
Alice

Our next NYC Bogleheads meeting will be: We'll be at one of the tables by the windows with a piece of paper that says "Bogleheads". Please mark your calendars! We will discuss possible future meeting locations, so let us know if you know of a potential meeting location. (A free public place, ideally quiet-ish so we can hear each other.)
