The South Bay Bogleheads® restarted a dormant San Jose Bogleheads chapter in 2015. The chapter held its first meeting on St. Patrick’s Day, 2015. The chapter meets monthly, skipping December and perhaps one summer month.
The chapter is led by a three-member team that includes the chapter coordinator, a co-leader, and a technician for handling computer and technology issues. The chapter has a mailing list of 53 names. Meetings normally consist of a half dozen participants.
Chapter meetings usually last one hour. New attendees are welcome and are engaged in the informal, collegial, and chatty ambience of our meetings. Meetings proceed to the topic of the evening, or open up to general conversation and discussion. In the last five minutes we set the date and proposed agenda for the next meeting.
The chapter has held recent meetings at the Center for Spiritual Living in San Jose, the Saratoga Public Library, Merrill Gardens in Campbell, and Harry’s Hofsbrau in San Jose.
The chapter has held meetings at Starbucks Cafe in Barnes & Noble near Hwy 85 and Almaden Expressway in San Jose. The chapter has also met at Sweet Tomatoes in San Jose.
