Don't know much about that club but the club I am a member of has a regular monthly meeting on the same night every month, but also a monthly "Tech Session" a different day of the month. This helps in that if you cannot make it to one meeting, you may be able to make the other meeting. The regular meeting is a bit more social with general reminders of what is happening in the club, upcomming competitions, etc., whereas the tech sessions are more based around a specific brewing related topic, but at both meetings you get to sample home brew, talk to people about problems/concerns/questions that you may have, and generally make friends.
In addition to the 2 meetings, they also hold the occational formal group brew and monthly social nights (where you can go hang out at a bar or tap house with other members and sample craft beer). I have also heard various members volunteer to help out the newer brewers by inviting them over to brew with them as their schedule allowed.
I would contact the club you are thinking about joining and explain the situation. I am sure there will be members of the club that would be glad to help you out and brew with you, even if you cannot make it to the monthly meetings.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.
