Who We Are and Where We Serve
The North Florida Chapter of BetterInvesting is one of many Chapters of the BetterInvesting organization. "Chapters" are geographic areas where we have a group of BetterInvesting volunteer members who dedicate themselves to training other members in various aspects of investing. As volunteers we provide investment education to BetterInvesting investment clubs, individual members and non-members who are interested in finding out more about the benefits of stock investing.
Our members and clubs are located in North Florida from the Space Coast (Melbourne, Cocoa and Daytona area) to the Gulf Coast (Port Charlotte north to the Big Bend/Tallahassee area). We have almost 800 BetterInvesting members that we support with over 400 members in one of our 52 clubs.
The North Florida Chapter of BetterInvesting is made up of experienced and highly trained BetterInvesting Volunteers. We assist in the formation of new clubs, visit established clubs for training and trouble-shooting, conduct Investors' Fairs and a variety of other training sessions. Classes are held in the local communities and online using webinar technology.
Mission & Goals
Our Mission is to provide a program of sound investment information, education and support that helps create knowledgeable and successful lifetime investors.
Our Goals are to help investors build their wealth through good investing principles and a fundamental approach to investing.
Our chapter has a robust Financial Literacy program for our members and volunteers as described in the following paragraphs. In addition, we are engaged in a joint venture with the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA)'s Cape Canaveral Chapter (MOAACC) to help military members (active, retired and separated) and their families become successful investors. This is a multifaceted program that covers a variety of financial literacy topics focusing on how to become financially secure and independent. You can find out more by visiting the BetterInvesting/MOAACC Financial Literacy website.
For our membership we conduct monthly online training workshops with individual and club members. This workshop concept was originally conceived as a training platform to support orientation and skill training for new Space Coast Model Stock Investing Club members. We encourage everyone (members and future members) to attend these monthly meetings but you do need to register to get your login credentials. It has since grown to support general chapter BI membership training in an interactive, unscripted workshop environment that supports individual, highly interactive learning. We've found it to be a very effective method to train new club members so that they can become competent, confident and productive members in their club. This complements our one-on-one and small group training sessions for new members.
