What happens at Local Chapter meetings?

Local Chapters hold meetings either in the evening on a weeknight or on a Saturday morning lasting one to two hours. You can expect to meet other AAII members—this alone can be an educational experience as you share your enthusiasm for investing and discuss the speaker's presentation sharing your thoughts and ideas.
Each Chapter Meeting offers an investment education presentation by a speaker or panel on an investment-related topic. Many well-known investment experts have provided presentations at Local Chapter Meetings—this is an opportunity you, as an investor, would not otherwise be able to participate in.
At a chapter meeting you can learn how to:
  • Pick Winning Stocks
  • Become a Computerized Investor
  • Protect Your Portfolio
  • Profit From Small- & Mid-Cap Stocks
  • Select Mutual Funds
  • And Much, Much More!!
  • A Chapter Meeting allows time for members to ask questions of the speaker—further enhancing the educational experience of a Chapter Meeting by providing you an opportunity to get the answers you need.

    Who plans the Local Chapter meetings?

    AAII members volunteer their time make all the necessary arrangements for each chapter meeting. Each chapter has a board comprised of Chapter Officers, Committee Chairpersons and Subgroup Leaders. These volunteers plan and implement each chapter meeting.

    What are Subgroups?

    AAII Subgroups are small gatherings sponsored by local chapters where members meet for general discussion or to explore a specific investment topic of interest to the group. The group leader along with the subgroup members will work together to decide on the type of meetings the group will hold along with the topic the group will study.

    Subgroup meeting details are included on the sponsoring chapter's meeting announcement.
