First, check to see if there is one in your area already, and you havent found it. Try the YMCA, the CYC, the JCC, and Boy Scouts. Ask at all local boat stores. Check with your local Sierra Club chapter, mine does several trips a year. Check w/local colleges, many have an Outdoor Club open to the community.
After you have exhausted all these options, its up to you to make your own club. check out the websites of several clubs at the link on this site: http://www.paddling.net/associations.html
and get a feel for how you want to organize.
