I want to thank everyone for responding and IUnknown for posting the AGA link. Everyone who wanted more info, there it is.
As an aside, I am not going to argue with anyone's reason(s) for not joining, I only joined last year and I knew about its existance for a very long time. My only suggestion would be, if you want to come to DC to meet Mr. Amano in November, you have to be a member of the AGA to attend the convention (AGA rules).
There are no 'local chapters' of the AGA. There are local fish clubs and sometimes plant clubs to join but none associated directly with the AGA. If you know a local plant club doesn't exist, do what I am incapable of doing, start one. I can grow plants but I can't organize people for anything.
Everyone else out there... I would still really like to hear your opinion.

Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.
It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.
That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".
