I am a member of a camera club back home in Tampa and one thing we do is weekly assignments with online postings of pictures .  This week the assignment was "orange"  topics have included symmetry, rust, solitude,  etc..  there is also a monthly challenge for cannon owners and sony owners -- anything to encourage photographers to shoot pic.  not sure if this is helpful at all or not.  the group is fccp - on meetup in tampa/clearwater fla area if you want to see what they are doing.  There are about 5 meetups going on at all times.

Hey everyone!
A while back we decided to cease holding club meetings during the summer months: June, July, August.  A few minutes ago I removed those club meetings from our calendar.  You should receive an email that is a notification of each cancellation.
As a club, we need for members to step up and help make things happen.  I no longer have the time to coordinate, plan, and present nine to twelve meetings a year.  We created the club with the intent that it is a community of photographers (beginner to expert) sharing experience, techniques, and vision.  The key part of this is “community”.  We need everyone to participate to ensure the survival of the group.
About five weeks ago I sent a message to everyone asking for nine people to volunteer to be responsible for putting together one meeting in the coming year (September 2013 to May 2014).  I also asked for input from the group on subjects or topics for meetings.  So far the response has been less than encouraging.
No one has volunteered to take on a meeting.
I received two meeting suggestions: HDR shooting and studio lighting.
As it stands right now we have no meetings planned for the future
Please consider volunteering to organize one meeting in the coming season. It is not necessary for you to be an expert in a particular subject.  You don't have to lead the meeting yourself.  Some of our best meetings have involved guest speakers or guest presenters.  You can arrange a subject matter expert to attend the meeting or arrange for the group to shoot at a special event or location.  Putting together one meeting a year is not a big deal.
Perhaps it is time to create a slightly more formal club structure by selecting a couple of officers.  Please share your thoughts with the group.
I hope to hear from you all soon.
