What part of Pa. are you from?
I am from Butler,just north of Pittsburgh.
The only local club is The Greater Pittsburgh Aquarium Society,I am a member.
Nothing on Bettas,that I know of except in Philly.
I have been tossing the idea around,either an IBC sanctioned club,or just a local Betta club.
I don't know of any shows,except maybe in Philly,I don't think they do shows.
There no IBC sanctioned clubs in Pa.,as far as I know.

If you were not so far away,I would be glad to work with you.
You could start by putting flyers in pet stores,pick a public place to hold your first get together,make sure you let people know it is for Bettas.
See how many have an interest and how many are breeders.
Even non breeders are great to have,you might turn them into breeders.
I am pretty sure the IBC had a convention in Lancaster a few years back.
Good luck on it,I would join if you got one going,could not attend meetings,but would give you all the support I could.
The IBC is a good place to start,they will give you an assist in getting one started.
I would not mind the drive to Lancaster for a show.
Now you got me thinking about it again!

I am sure there is,we just have to find them!
I know through the GPASI,there are few-very few,Bettas show up at the auctions once in awhile.
I usually have some in the auctions,other than me,there is not much in the way of selection.
I hope to have some for the auction in May.
Mine might not be quite old enough by then,we have an age limit on how young the fish can be for the auctions.

If you're trying to start a statewide group, perhaps you could just rotate the meeting locations each time. That way, you might get a larger group of people involved, which could help increase the number of members overall.

So one meeting might be in the western part of the state, and the next meeting in the eastern section. But since you'd be involving the entire state, you'd end up with more members than if you limit it to your local region.

And you could post meeting minutes online (or just distribute them via email) so that everyone would be kept up-to-date with what was going on.
