Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated
For a Camera Club how about starting with a simple blog site?
Running a forum requires a critical mass of interaction to make it work.
Eg: My Club http://ttgcamera.blogspot.com.au/

It won't happen overnight, but hopefully if we take a few steps down that road we might end up with a much easier system. We've managed to get them on-line to vote on various things, so maybe they can be persuaded to migrate by degrees ( I hope.)

There is no off the shelf photo comp a management system!!
You will need to write that for yourself, i.e. PHP and MySQL programming skills.
There are some commercial programs I am told, but we won't be buying them given our paltry budget, but even if we can get members to lodge the details on-line it would be a start, because once you have that data in digital form it saves so much typing by one person. If we can start storing more stuff online it will also help with general administrative matters - like a central database for example.
Baby steps really ..... long term vision, short term knowledge as yet!
