I'll add support for Refresh (Raleigh-Durham calls it "Refresh the
Triangle<http://www.meetup.com/refreshthetriangle/>").
 TriUXPA <http://triuxpa.org/> is another, slightly more formal,
professional group that is solid.  Then there are other meetup groups down
here that I've attended events for here and there like Function
Pink<http://www.meetup.com/functionpink/>and Triangle
Drupal Users Group <https://groups.drupal.org/tridug>.
