Join Us For The
2022 Bogleheads Conference


You missed out!

Dear Bogleheads,

The John C. Bogle Center for Financial Literacy is excited to welcome you to our first live conference in three years. We’ve pulled together an action-packed agenda full of Bogleheads favorites as well as investment and personal finance experts who will be appearing at our conference for the first time.

We’re also planning two new events at this year’s conference: Bogleheads University, an afternoon of educational sessions on October 12, and a special Bogleheads banquet on the evening of October 13. The banquet will feature a seated dinner; a conversation with Eric Balchunas, author of the book The Bogle Effect; and the introduction of the Bogleheads Hall of Fame and the naming of its first inductee.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
