Mid-Michigan Chapter serves Flint east to Lexington and north through the Thumb, West Branch, Mt. Pleasant, Traverse City, Mackinaw City, Petoskey, Charlevoix, and surrounding areas (not including the Lansing area)
We are eager to serve the investing needs of Mid-Michigan BetterInvesting members. If you are starting a new club or need some help in taking the next step, whatever that might be, please give us a call. We have Board members who are willing to visit clubs to explain BetterInvesting principles, answer questions about BetterInvesting, and just generally raise the level of enthusiasm about BetterInvesting programs.

Join us for our new Mid-Michigan Chapter program, THE ROUNDTABLE, a monthly session of "name your favorite stock right now" in true round table fashion. The round table knights include small company champion and Mid-Michigan Director Ken Kavula, Cy "MythBuster" Lynch, pharmaceutical scientist Hugh McManus, and ManifestInvesting's Mark Robertson who will analyze their favorite stocks. This will be a continuing series. The team will be identifying companies positioned for strong performance and share some ideas about their potential. THE ROUNDTABLE is one more component of Mid-Michigan Chapter's efforts to promote investor education focusing on investing for the long-term. The date of this monthly program will be announced in the Mid-Michigan e-newsletters and on the BI Mid-Michigan webpage (betterinvesting.org). Dates and times will vary month to month, based on availability of the presenters. To register go to Upcoming events/monthly meetings.
Mid-Michigan Chapter has a group of Directors who would be happy to visit your club and offer encouragement and advice on the BetterInvesting method of starting and running a profitable investment club. Contact 810-640-2231 for further information.
