Welcome to the Silicon Valley Chapter of the American
Association of Individual Investors


 

Chapter Mission: AAII local chapters, grassroots organizations led by volunteer AAII members, allow AAII to extend its mission "person to person" to individual investors in their own communities by programming meetings that provide unbiased investment education in a social context.


This site is a place where members can go to find more information on subjects covered by AAII Silicon Valley Chapter speakers. Electronic versions of handouts and additional information such as spreadsheets, and links to other online information will be posted here after talks.

Details!
The Jubilee/Redemption facility is no longer available to us so starting in September AAII-Silicon Valley will move to a new event location - the Garden House at Shoup Park in Los Altos!! See below for further details.
Our New Location: The Garden House at Shoup Park

The Garden House at Shoup Park
400 University Ave Los Altos, CA

Our new home will be at the Garden House at Shoup Park in Los Altos. The Garden House represents a significant upgrade to the Jubilee location...

  • The facility can accommodate up to 150 people
  • It features a raised stage with a large drop-down screen and projector
  • The location features light airy outdoor view in a forested park setting
  • Plenty of free parking is available
  • Easy to find, central location
  • And much more...
There is one drawback: There is no Wi-Fi access at the location. Those of you who need Wi-Fi access will need to bring your own hotspot. For interactive tours of the exterior and interior of the Garden House go to

This season the chapter will be webcasting as many of our events "live" from our Shoup Park Garden House location as circumstances allow. We strongly encourage you to attend our events in-person if you're in the area and your schedule permits. (We love seeing and interacting with our members.) However, if you're out of area or your Saturday schedule can't afford the extra commute time, feel free to attend via webcast.

  • All participants will get the option to attend in person or remotely via the webcast -- the choice is yours!
  • If you're participating live at our Shoup Park Garden House location our speaker will be presenting live just as in the past.
  • If you're participating via webcast, you'll be able to interact with the speaker, ask questions, etc. via the webcast chat window. (Board members will ask your questions on your behalf.)
  • With the speaker's permission, we'll have copies of the speaker's slides available for download at our website before the event begins
  • After the event all participants -- live at Shoup Park or remote via webcast -- will get access to recording of a session.

We're working hard to allow our members the choice to participate live or via webcast based on your preferences. We hope this makes our events both more enjoyable and accessible to you.

OK, so how does this webcast thing work???

It's pretty simple, really...

  • You buy your ticket, you get an email confirming your purchase, and we log your email address.
  • Two days before the event we send you an email with the link to the event and directions on how to log on. We'll repeat this email the day before the event.
  • The morning of the event we'll send you the password to enter the event. You can enter starting at 8:30.
  • When you enter the webcast you'll see some of our slides on the screen. We'll mute your audio and disable your camera so there aren't any distracting pictures, videos or sounds.
  • You can ask questions at any time via your chat window in our tool. Your hard-working Board members will capture your questions and present them to our speaker.
That's it!!
