Online Chapter Annual Meeting - All Members - August
You will be sent reminders of this meeting a week, a day and 2 hour aheads of meeting time.
We will start with the Annual Business meeting where we will briefly describe who we are, review our accomplishments this year, and our plans for the upcoming year, which starts on 1 October 2021. The BI OLC membership will also be voting on the 2021-2022 slate of directors that will be joining the chapter’s existing leadership team. Nominations from the floor for those chapter members who are interested in becoming chapter volunteers, with the potential for joining the chapter’s leadership team in the future, will be accepted. Upon approval at the next chapter board meeting those interested volunteers will be entered into the chapter’s formal Volunteer Training Program. All BI members, regardless of their chapter affiliation, are welcome to attend the OLC business meeting but only Online Chapter member are eligible to vote for the election of directors.
Our chapter was successful in recruiting a nationally known BI volunteer presenter, Cy Lynch, from the Georgia Chapter, who will be presenting a topic titled “Reflections of a Lifelong Better Investor.” Cy is author of the BetterInvesting magazine’s “Growth Stock Outlook” column. He will discuss BetterInvesting’s four principles and the Stock Selection Guide (SSG), sharing how his application of these has evolved over nearly 40 years of becoming a better investor.
Because of Cy’s popularity and reputation for excellence in investor education our chapter has opened up his presentation to the full BetterInvesting membership. To better reach out to all of our members BI has graciously agreed to use their monthly StockUp program as the venue to manage all the enrollments.
