What we're about
We are the local (Silicon Valley) chapter for the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII) (http://www.aaii.com) - one of 42 such chapter across the country. We hold chapter meetings that host a variety of topics on personal financial planning, wealth building, and investing. 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.

The Silicon Valley Chapter holds a variety of events -- Computerized Investing meetings, Investment Discussion group meetings, Financial Planning Workshops and Discussion Groups -- that are free to attend. There is a nominal fee to attend our monthly events to cover overhead of speaker costs, facility rental and event expenses.
We are not here to sell anything - only to create an open and friendly environment for like-minded people to learn, share and explore investing. We are an all-volunteer organization and are always seeking additional members who can help with various planning and administrative issues.
