There are a few other online groups going but they all are run through Facebook which I totally detest and which is on it's way out for businesses. Less and less business are on Facebook because you competitors even run ads on your FB page. I even had Michaels have a ad that was displayed on my FB page. Local meetup just doesn't work, it didn't work when we were all part of the PPFA so I believe it would be even harder without. Sorry, I sound so negative, but I'm just stating the truth in our area.How about organizing a monthly Meetup in your area. Or better yet, online so others could participate.
Back in the 1980s there were numerous local PPFA chapters around the country, especially in major cities, but they died off, one by one. I can't speak about all of those chapters, but the Central Ohio chapter died because framers simply stopped attending the meetings. My impression is that too many of them were bored and didn't want to waste an evening a month in the same old conversations over beer and pizza with people who weren't actually friends. Sad, but true.
Also, many of them didn't want to fraternize with their local competitors -- I guess they were afraid someone would steal their customers or their framing secrets. I never understood the secrecy thing. A number of framers have visited my shop over the years, and every one if them was invited to the back room for a chat over coffee/tea/snacks (and in the early days, beer). I have visited quite a few framers at home and around the country, but very few are welcoming. On the contrary, even out if town, most of them are very stand-off-ish and really don't want to waste their time or engage at all.
Probably the closest thing to what you seek would be the social media forums for framers, such as The Picture Framers Private Group, Framers Only, Underpinner, Professional Picture Framers Group (PPFA), Framers Point, and several others. If you actually have local framing friends, maybe you could meet them online.
I have no idea where you are, but if you care to visit for social or shop-talk, come on down and we'll do lunch or something.
