Your Networking Opportunities:

A key feature of our monthly chapter meetings in this really good meeting venue is the Special Huddles Networking Session where you have the opportunity to make new friendships with like-minded colleagues, to help you build your skills and knowledge and to improve your trading / investing results. Of course, you will also be able to network with your existing friends and colleagues and talk about the markets — both past market performance, and where the market might be going to in the near future.

Visitors are welcome. First visit free, subsequent visits $40.
All first-time visitors and new members are welcome to join in the “Newbies Huddle” during the networking session. This will provide you with information about the ATAA, and the basics about Technical Analysis, and some tips about going forward. If a member is responsible for signing up a new member, the member can receive a discount off their next annual membership renewal fee (to be noted on the New Member sign-up form).
