I explain step by step how to attend the Berkshire Hathaway 2022 Annual Shareholders Meeting IN PERSON IN OMAHA to see Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger live! Let me know if you plan to be there!
I share everything you need to know with detailed information about how to attend this year’s Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders meeting in Omaha Nebraska that is happening during the weekend of April 30, 2022!
The Berkshire Hathaway 2022 Annual Shareholders Meeting is happening at the CHI Health Center convention center at 455 North 10th Street, Omaha, Nebraska, 68102.
In order to attend the annual Berkshire meeting, you should own at least one share of Berkshire Hathaway stock. It can be either in the form of the Berkshire A share ($500,000) or the Berkshire B share ($330).
The best way to attend is to be an actual Berkshire shareholder where you can get up to 4 meeting credentials. But if you are not able to be a shareholder, perhaps you know someone like a family member or friend who might be willing to give you a meeting credential.
Since past Berkshire Hathaway meetings have drawn crowds of 40,000 people, you want to be proactive and get your credentials ASAP.
You can get your meeting credentials by mail or by will call. If you don’t have the credentials on you, you can go to the Will Call area in the CHI Health Center lobby with proof of ownership and photo ID.
The way to get the credentials ahead of time is via the proxy materials as part of being a shareholder, which were either mailed out to shareholders by mid March 2022 or as of March 15 they should appear in your brokerage account.
Then you need to locate the proxy materials in your brokerage account, my proxy documents were in a location called Shareholder Library then eDocuments. And there is an annual meeting credential order form that you should fill out and return to the address provided. You should receive the meeting credentials and a visitor’s guide after a few weeks in my experience.
If you are having difficulties, reach out to your brokerage’s Corporate Actions team or Berkshire’s investor relations to help you locate the proxy materials.
While you’re looking at the proxy materials, you can also read the 2021 annual report and Warren Buffett’s 2021 annual letter to shareholders that came out in February 2022. Feel free to watch my detailed summary of the letter in this video.
In order to know the full details of what to expect at this year’s meeting, visit Berkshire’s Shareholder Meeting Info website.
A new requirement to attend the 2022 meeting is to provide your Covid-19 vaccination proof, and you would upload this to the Clear Health Pass app. In my video I show the detailed instructions they provided to complete this health screening requirement. We can upload our CDC vaccine card or digitally link vaccine proof from selected healthcare providers or pharmacies.
I also go over the agenda of the weekend festivities, including the Berkshire Bazaar of Bargains on Friday, April 29, the actual meeting on Saturday, April 30, and the Invest In Yourself 5K on Sunday, May 1, 2022.
The shareholder shopping day is happening at the CHI Health Center Exhibit Hall from 12pm-5pm, and there are discounts at Nebraska Furniture Mart (NFM) in several locations and a special Borsheims shopping night.
The agenda for Berkshire’s April 30 main event is as follows:
Doors Open 7am
Company Movie 8:30am
Question and Answer 9:15am-3:30pm
Business Meeting 3:45pm-4:30pm
NFM Picnic 5:30pm-8pm
If you can’t attend in person but would like to watch the livestream, tune into CNBC’s livestream at 9:45am ET on April 30 at: www.cnbc.com/BRKlive22.
I provide tips with regard to traveling, hotels, and activities you can do around Omaha when you are in town. Make sure you reserve your flights and lodging ahead of time! We should also be aware of what the entry rules are for the CHI Health Center, especially as it relates to what types of bags we can bring into the convention center.
There are some places that Buffett helped to make famous, including Gorat’s Steakhouse, The Bookworm Omaha, Ak-Sar-Ben former racetrack, and the local McDonald’s. We can have the full, Warren Buffett experience if we check out everything there is to see and do while in Omaha!
