It might be hard to find one organization that meets all those needs [In reply to] Can't Post

especially if you're crossing movie fandom with book fandom. The two sets overlap but aren't completely inclusive.

Most organizations are what the members make it. And mostly organizations rely upon a small handful of people to keep things active. I say start one! Roheryn was just remarking on Off Topic that she's recently stumbled across two keen Tolkien fans. I bet you'll find other fans if you seek them. You might get the most interest if you actually plan an activity and then see who you can get to join in. Rather than trying to get people together to decide what you're going to do. But, depending on personalities, the second approach could also work.

I'm not terribly active (hardly at all) in the Minnesota Tolkien Society. But I did attend a Halloween party and a Silmarillion discussion group organized by them. There have also been a few TORn Message Board members in this area that have met socially a few times. And then I met up with them and the MTS for the Trilogy events.

It's always been fun. I value the friendships I've made via Tolkien very much.
