(To the reader of this list...)
What city are you in? Or are you within easy commuting distance of a large metro area? Maybe your city has their own groups, call the Chamber of Commerce or local newspaper for computer groups, trade organizations and clubs. Look in the local 'zines' like a Business Journal, ComputorEdge, or ComputerUser for publishing group listings.
For example, in Denver, there are two additional publishing groups. We drive a minimum of 65 miles one way to 4 different groups throughout the month! Kass is a founder and (twice) past chairman of Denver's Design to Print (design, prepress & print publishing) group. For more info about Design to Print (Denver or Colorado Springs) send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
