I'd definitely look for those organizations that have a strong local chapter in your area. If OWASP has a chapter in your area (and you have an interest in web) then definitely check them out. Depending on your background, you could also check out Infragard (it always feels like I am misspelling that) to bolster some strong relationships with law enforcement.
I'm based in Mississippi, so not much in the way of local chapters around here, but I would definitely check these out if they were available.
