Rather than just being a member of your local chapter/club, consider stepping into an executive role. Not only will this stretch your skills, but it will also open up a new networking world.
I was a Division Director in Toastmasters. It opened up the whole international organization and its executives to me.
A few questions for you:
1) What role do you hold now?
2) What role are you looking for?
3) How many years of experience do you have?
I do agree with Stephane.
You should apply for other positions. It is like finding a new job. Fortunately, you have enough time and no rush since you have a job.
However, a more challenging role is not necessarily a good thing.
1) Half Business Analyst, half Project Expeditor
2) Looking for Project Management
3) 5 years experience.
each Chapter has its own level of networking opps. Some networking always comes with volunteer jobs at Chapters.
And there are other NGOs (not PMI) offering good networking like Toastmasters, mentioned by Stephane before. Or any community supporting groups (housing, food, education, firefighters etc).
Or, you could go for virtual networking, which is more global and diverse, LinkedIn hosts a bunch of groups for different interests.
