Professional societies

Professional bodies can be smart paperwise especially in kenya with the current scarcity in the job market
Might there be societies or clubs where members from the same profession get in touch. Or even social media groups and whats the procedure to become a member of such clubs
Yeah there are online meetups, reddit subforums etc

Most of them are for people in tech anyway (software developers, web designers) because they spend a huge chunk of time online learning trying to keep in touch with the latest technologies which changes at a very fast speed
