    Topic: Investment Information Group

    The Investment Information Group meet on Friday afternoons for approximately 2 hours to exchange ideas and opinions on managing money and wealth. While many members have their own retirement portfolios professionally managed, we still dabble in investing or use the information garnered to share with our financial advisors and vice versa.   Our main focus is on stocks but discussions include reviewing economic data, looking at charts from various websites and discussing how this information might affect our own financial goals.   Attendees are encouraged to ask questions, share ideas and experiences and discuss favorite stocks/investments.  Come join us.
