Without having an answer, let me see if I understand.

You are looking for a "cloud service" that provides the tools required for community building

Organizational web presence (Home page)
File sharing, 
Bulleting boards/discussion groups, 
Member blogs,

Fairly equivalent to what we have at kwlug.org but supported "in the cloud" so you don't have to bother maintaining the system and servers involved.

Is this correct?
