Any interest in Roanoke, VA Valley BogleHeads chapter?

Post by goshenBogle » Sun Dec 04, 2016 12:03 pm

Do any Bogleheads readers have an interest in forming a local chapter in the Roanoke, VA Valley - Roanoke / Vinton/ Hollins / Salem / Blacksburg / Christianburg?

If so, please respond to this post. If there is enough interest, we can form a chapter.

Thank you.

Im responding to this post just to keep it active. I live near Roanoke, and would be interested in becoming a member but not an organizer. I believe it would be really cool to have a successful chapter in our area.

Sounds like this would be a great topic on a new thread to develop strategies to attract interest in our area.. I do know that someone would need to step up, take charge, and be a coordinator. Unfortuantly, im not that guy. Perhaps a meetup group could spark interest.

Hello,

I recently got started on Boggleheads and I am also in the Roanoke area. Did you have any success organizing a group?

I'm not sure I want to be the coordinator for Roanoke area. I'm open to an informal meeting since there's only a few of us.

I'm in Blacksburg! I'm not sure what kinds of things are typically covered in these meetings. Ideas?

Yes, I am interested in attending, along with a family member or two.

How do we get started?
