I would think w/ BRAC and the influx of people, we should have enough interest.

If you get two more (for a total of five) and one of you agrees to be the local chapter coordinator, I'll assign your group the next Local Chapter number and add you to the Local Chapters Map so others can find you.

The chapter coordinator doesn't have to be an investment guru. Rather, that person communicates with the chapter members about meeting dates, locations, topics to discuss, etc. Just PM me when you're ready to go.

It's a chance for a group of local investors to meet, discuss investing topics and learn from each other in a social setting. Many folks can't make it to our annual conferences, but would still like to meet and discuss investing with other Bogleheads.

OK, you have enough interested folks to get your group going. All I need is for one of you to step forward and agree to be the local coordinator.

Any volunteers?

It's official: We now have a Huntsville AL Bogleheads Local Chapter. Jonathan (bigbold) has agreed to be the Local Chapter Coordinator.

Members and prospective members can feel free to use this Local Chapters sub-forum to discuss Huntsville matters such as meeting dates, times, locations, agendas, suggestions, etc.

I'll add your group name and contact info to the Local Chapters Map so others can find and contact you.

Thanks to Jonathan for stepping up and agreeing to be the coordinator. He can be reached bother here and at the Local Chapter email address HuntsvilleBogleheads at gmail dot com.

Good luck to all the Huntsville Bogleheads.

Hello all Huntsville Bogleheads!

My name is Jonathan Boyd, and I am happy to serve as the local coordinator for the Huntsville/Northern Alabama chapter. I received an e-mail query from a couple in Cullman, so I know there is interest in getting together to talk. What I'd like to do is establish when would be the best time to get together for our first meeting.

Would a weekend day, like a Saturday afternoon, be best for people who may need to travel some distance to attend? Or would people prefer a week night meeting after work?

For a location, I would suggest a place like The Nook on Bob Wallace Drive in Huntsville, but am of course open to different opinions on the best place to meet and talk. Perhaps a conference room at the Huntsville/Madison County Public Library would work better? If you have suggestions, please let me know.

Thank you, and I look forward to meeting with people who want to get together.

Jonathan

Hope your group is successful. Used to go to HSV a couple times a year for work back in the 1990's-2000's. Nice place and nice people there.
