Manga swap! Count me in for that one (provided I'm not traveling at the time). I have a fair amount of stuff that's actually not in English and would love to be able to trade up if other people are interested.
As far as panel/workshop ideas go -- I have a few of my own. There's actually a presentation I'm trying to get off the ground at a number of the cons I'm going to, where I talk about Edogawa Rampo and his influence on Japanese popular culture in general.
I'm also hoping I can modulate my workload a bit so that I can join the gatherings in person -- I hate not getting out of the house!

> Hello folks,
> With the summer season coming up, we've got some plans for Metro
> events that might pique your interest. In addition to our monthly
> screenings at Maui Tacos, we've got our lecture & discussion series
> hosted by the Museum of Cartoon & Comic Art (MoCCA) featuring local
> industry and fan guests.
> In the next few months, we're planning a manga-swap where Metro folks
> can swap hard-to-find manga, an AnimeNext panel to acquaint fans with
> the local anime scene, and an outdoor picnic & barbeque for July.
> (ah, food and sunshine...) Of course, there'll definitely be movie
> trips to some of the summer blockbusters, with plenty of fannish glee
> for all. (Pirates, anyone?)
> We're also brainstorming for possible social events at local
> conventions, and panel- and workshop-style gatherings here in the
> city. Naturally, if there's something you think a friend might like
> to attend, bring them along. Many of our current members are here now
> because someone dragged them along to a meeting or a movie, so you
> never know.
> Hopefully you'll find something to enjoy among our upcoming events,
> but we'd like to know if there's anything else you'd like to see
> happening at Metro Anime. Feel free to post to the list if there's
> some kind of event that we can hold that might be interesting to the
> general group. While we are kind of restricted in terms of venue and
> cost (cheap/free is generally the rule), sometimes we're able to
> arrange things in concert with another club or organization and thus
> share the burden.
