Bogleheads® local chapters are as varied as the Bogleheads. As a complement to the national meetings, local Diehards or Bogleheads chapters have existed since January 2005. In addition to the Local Chapters and Bogleheads Community sub-forum, Yahoo Groups, Google Groups, and Groups.io serve as a venue for meeting plans, recaps, and a way to stay in touch between meetings.
Some chapters meet in small informal groups at random dates. Other chapters have a set meeting schedule and a more formal meeting agenda. But the common bond between these local chapters are the desire to discuss personal investing with like-minded peers.
Information regarding the date and time, as well as planned agendas for group meetings, can be found by visiting Upcoming events in our site’s menu.
A complete list of local chapters and contact information is posted in the forum at: Bogleheads Local Chapters – General Info and Chapter List. For guidance and instructions on how to to join or form a local chapter see How to Join a Local Bogleheads® Chapter.
