Well it seems that at last the WordPress users have gathered into the AtlantaWordPress UserGroup. Looks like they're looking for a new meeting location, a bit closer to town. Anybody who knows of a good spot, please drop them a note. As to their charter: according to their meetup:

For web beginners and WP Gurus to get together to learn and bounce ideas off each other, and have a good time!

Meet other local WordPress users, the Web's fastest growing dynamic content management system. Gather and discuss the best ways to work with your WordPress and your site.

Open to anyone interested in learning more about HTML, starting a blog, building your own site and learning about plugin tools to enhance your site.

There's now also a Northwest offshoot as well.

    There are several quality Theme Frameworks available that make it easy to build and customize a WordPress website to fit nearly any project.

    We will not have time to review all of the available frameworks, so we will be  specifically reviewing the Genesis Framework created by StudioPress.

    During this meetup we will discuss:

    • General overview of what frameworks are and why we use them

    • What are child themes and why they are important

    • Available page templates

    • General style changes that can be made easily

    • Getting support

    If you have any questions that you would like us to specifically review, leave them in the comments below and we will try to work that into the discussion.

    • What is CSS and why do we use it?

    • What are 'typical' modifications to themes and how to make them

    • Correct way to change Fonts

    • Simple color theory and design
