I joined a few days ago, hoping to join/start a chapter in Kansas/Missouri area. What I've found is disappointing, though not surprising. Unfortunately, I'm stuck living in the Midwest for one more year, before moving back to Santa Rosa. Maybe at some point TCM should consider a different way to gather and hold members, because I've seen this idea fail numerous times - from book clubs, writing clubs, etc., and it's a model that has never worked in KS/MO.
Hopefully, I can join a chapter outside of these states, if only to enjoy movies and reviews long distance.
