With just 6 weeks left in 2012, you have time to make some small changes to your investment and tax strategies that could pay you rich dividends in tax savings. Understand how to shift expenses from 2012 to 2013 or 2013 to 2012 to save real tax money. Discover how to buy the equipment you need this year to save on taxes, including cars. Learn how to minimize and avoid capital gains taxes on your investments. Learn how to set up the right kinds of non-real estate investment accounts to shelter huge piles of money into retirement and beyond. IF you pass this up and hear later what you missed, you will be kicking yourself. Presented by Allan Jackson, CPA, Investor and Member of STLIPA.

WE ARE DOUBLING THE PAY FOR ALL BOARD MEMBERS!! This is a volunteer run organization. We need new people to serve on the board to help us plan events, and bring in members and speakers. It is easy to serve...Board members meet once a month for an hour, and assist with meeting details including food and drink. Paid Members of STLIPA will vote on the Board...if you want to join the board, please let us know.
ANNUAL STLIPA CHRISTMAS PARTY will be December 5th from 6:00 PM to whenever...doors open at 6:00 PM on the First Wednesday of the Month. PAID MEMBERS OF STLIPA will get a reduced price event ticket of just $10 per person if paid before Thanksgiving. People paying after Thanksgiving must pay $20 per person. Event will include food and drink (non-alcoholic) with cash bar. We will do a "Re-gift Bash", so everyone is expected to bring a special gift that you really want to pass on to someone else. We will have door prizes and raffles. Location and other details will be discussed at the member meeting and posted to Meetup.

REMEMBER TO RSVP FOR EVENTS VIA MEETUP.com:
Whether you are a new member or a long-time member, please be sure to RSVP for events. For each event, you can RSVP for yourself and any guests. Just like you, other members and potential members check the attendance to see if an event is "worth" going to. As our regular attenders know, most monthly member meetings turn out between 30 and 60 people, sometimes more. Lunch at Cecil's events turn out 15 to 40 people on average. Classes and special events usually sell out. We use our attendance numbers to help us plan other events. If you RSVP via Meetup, we have an easy way to track who is coming and who is not, to plan for food, hand-outs and other details. And, via Meetup, you can make suggestions for improvements and new meetings. So please sign up today at www.Meetup.com.
