By design, the Los Angeles Whisk(e)y Society is a small and private group. Membership is by invitation only. New attendees are usually nominated by existing members.
LAWS meetings are usually formally structured but informal in tone. Meetings are like gatherings of old friends. We look for people who will fit well within our existing group. A very deep knowledge in one or more categories of whiskey is required, and you'll need to be able to get to Los Angeles for meetings.
