AAII Atlanta Investment Chapter Pages

We are the local (Atlanta) chapter for the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII) - one of 42 such chapter across the country. We hold monthly chapter meetings that host a variety of topics on personal financial planning, wealth building, and investing (see list of past speakers/topics below). Our mission is to educate and empower individual investors in their quest for achieving financial independence. To that end, we strive to bring compelling and accomplished speakers to present timely, relevant and actionable topics.

Want to find out how how to get started? Join this Meetup group and you will be notified of future meetings and events. We protect your privacy and work to prevent any spam from being posted to our website. Beginners and advanced investors are welcomed! There is a nominal fee to attend each monthly meeting to cover overhead of the facility rental and event expenses. We are not here to sell anything - only to create a open and friendly environment for like-minded people to learn, share and explore investing. Please join us!

We are an all-volunteer organization and are always seeking additional members who can help with various planning and administrative issues.

Feel free to contact us with any questions, comments or feedback. This is YOUR organization!
