Well, the most important thing to do is join and try and get other friends and herpers you know to join the local society. Once you are a member, try to participate in activities or even run for the societies Board of Directors. You can also suggest activities (like maybe a local demonstration at a Mall of Library.) If you suggest activities be sure to be willing to volunteer as well. There is no use complaining about something if you don't plan of doing anything about it. :)

I can say from experience that planning a show takes quite a bit of work (at least for the first one). For our show in Buffalo we have several people all tackling various parts (vendors, advertising, speakers, raffle, etc.) and I must say things run smoother now that they did for our first one.

If you have more questions, please e-mail me and we can talk about other things you can do.

:Thank you! That was helpful! Without mentioning where exactly I am it looks like the one in my area is pretty useless. Any ideas on how to liven it up a bit? Specifically, I am interested in seeing some shows in my area instead of always traveling elsewhere to them.
:Thanks so much!
