There's an Atlanta Wordpress, SEO and Web Design Group. I'm not quite sure how this differs from the Atlanta WordPress Users' Group, except that from the title, it sounds like they have a somewhat broader charter. From their Meetup Page:

By attending our meetup, you will learn the following:
- Create/Edit and publish a Wordpress site
