Statewide is a great idea.

I could contact the IBC and get some information from them.
I have a copy of Flare that had an article on starting a IBC sanctioned club.

I would contact a couple of IBC members and ask them how you would go about starting an IBC chapter.

I will print out some flyers and cover(as well as I can) the northwest of the state.
I will put them in the pet stores in a 50 mile radius of me.
I will contact the president of GAPSI and see if I can have something put in our monthly magazine,and get a little mouth to mouth from the other members.
We can start out easy and see how many people are interested,then proceed from there.
I can pick a spot that will be central to 4 counties,so people will not have to travel to far for a first contact.
Then we can decide to contact the IBC or not.
It is a lot of work,baby steps to start with!
Bill

Here is what I was thinking:
statewide club with a name(whatever),
Nw chapter
SE chapter
Ne chapter
have not heard from the SW,it might come in time.
Each chapter could have a monthly meeting in local central to them,different locals each time as agreed to by it's members.
Perhaps once a year(whatever is agreeable on)a statewide meeting,hosted by each chapter.
The meetings can consist of whatever the members agree on,shows,auctions,of course exchanging ideas.
I will be putting out fliers in the next couple of weeks,with my email as a contact.
Then I will see how much interest I can generate and get back with some numbers.
Then I will set up a meeting to explain what our goals are,if anyone gets back to me.
We already have an offer from a forum member to set up a website or Facebook page for us,I think a website would really be cool.
Now for the sticky part!!
We, at some point will have to think of dues and how we want to do them,each chapter or statewide,of course if we go the IBC route there will be their dues,dues for both would not be that bad.
I do not know how other state orgs. do it,but we could find out.
Elections probably by chapters,any other ideas?
The org.that I belong to now has 2 auctions a year,a percentage goes to the seller and part goes to the club.
All this can be figured out when and if we can get something going.
Baby steps!!!!\
