Some ideas i might try is listing your society on some popular web lists. Maybe a small website, a home page might be enough to establish a presence on the web. Less modern tactics are just as efficient too, try making fliers and asking if you can post them at local pet shops that carry reptiles, supplies for them or feeders, if your lucky enough to have a college student or two, have them post a flyer on their Universities bulletin board. Make sure you mention amphibians as well, there are many people who don't know what a herp or herpetological society are all about.

Check around with local schools/universities and see about planning an event. An open house or something where people can learn about reptiles and amphibians in a safe environment, for all involved.

And as far as the timing of your meetings. You'd have to check with your members. Make a call, send a letter or email, and basically take a poll. Crunch some numbers and present them at a meeting, outlining the most popular time to meet.
