I was a local IT consultant until 2004, and now work online, but have been a member of the OCCA for years. We recently started announcing our meetings here on Meetup.com to help us spread the word.
It's a friendly environment to share knowledge, find out answers to specific questions, and to meet new people. Furthermore, membership in the OCCA entitles you to a presence on their website, which gives your consulting business exposure that it might not otherwise obtain.
