What we're about

We are the local (Atlanta) chapter for the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII) - 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 (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 meeting to cover overhead of speaker fees, 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. 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 at aaiichapteratlanta@gmail.com with any questions, comments or feedback. This is YOUR organization!

AAII Lunch Social Meeting

Sweet Tomatoes Perimeter (in the Costco and Home Depot parking lot)

Please join us for a Lunch Social on the fourth Tuesday of every month at Sweet Tomatoes, 6340 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd. Atlanta, GA 30328, from 2:00 to 3:30 pm to discuss everything and anything financial. (Note: There is a Senior discount of $8.49 for lunch and beverage, starting at 2:00, for those over 60.) This is very casual and you are welcome to come late and leave early if you need to. We're hoping that more AAII subgroups will naturally emerge from these luncheons -- such as an Option's group or a Women's Investing group -- as we discuss our financial interests, goals and questions. We'll plant to switch tables halfway through so we can converse with even more people! Hope to see you there!
