I think it bears mentioning that we ARE the FTCA. One of the reasons for signing up for the FTCA, was that we should want to represent the model aviation community to the rest of the general public. We don't need to wait for the crew at Edgewater to discuss ideas for how we can do that, and I genuinely believe that, if we initiate discussions here on how we can do that, we'll also foster more activity here in the group.
We all know our own home areas, and likely have some ideas for how we can promote the hobby in a positive way in our communities. If we always wait for someone else to get the ball rolling, though, we'll spend way too much time just twiddling our thumbs.
