Also known as Computer-Aided Investing, the new name better reflects what we've been doing: having interesting conversations about all sorts of topics in the investing world. Techniques, tips, training, securities, commodities, indexes, forex, computer programs, ETFs, ETC... Whatever our members are interested in and bring to the table. The agenda for each meeting is announced about a week before the meeting.
The new place, Terwilliger Plaza, worked out well, with some interesting new attendees with lots to share.
Terwilliger Plaza, 2545 SW Terwilliger Blvd, Portland. This is very close to the I-405 exits for SW Sixth Street. Pretend you are going to OSHU, and as you start the upgrade on Terwilliger Blvd, look to your right and you'll see Terwilliger Plaza, where you want to end up. Then look quickly to your left and you'll see an employee parking lot where you can park the car. You can also take the ramp up to Terwilliger Plaza. You may park there if there is space. However you get there, and wherever you park, we must sign in at the receptionist's desk, and he or she will let you know which of their rooms we're specifically meeting in.
Our new schedule is:
6:45 PM Set up and member chat time.
7:00 PM Presenter(s) start.
8:45 PM End of meeting.
