If you're getting what you want out of your membership in the organization, then don't worry about it. If you aren't, don't bother with them any more.... go elsewhere and just let your membership expire. There's a couple photo-related organizations in my neck of the woods. The closest, however, I've heard is very elite and closed-minded. The closest I get to an actual organized 'club' is an informal gathering every Saturday morning at the local brick-n-mortar camera store. Local shutterbugs gather and just discuss whatever comes up. No dues, no memberships, no minutes, no officers, no money.
