I'm smiling because I see you are in Lebanon, PA. I lived in Womelsdorf for around a decade, and even when I moved (we are now in Lancaster county) visit Lebanon on and off (last time was trying to get into the town hall meeting with Senator Specter and failing to get in).
While I'm not a Joomla developer (my background and current work is in security and server administration), I would be interested in a group depending on location along with date/time (I'm on call 24x7).
Lancaster county -- Lancaster, Denver, Ephrata, Adamstown, Reinholds, Bowmansville, New Holland, etc. -- would probably work best (but I'm biased). Reading in the areas of Wyomissing, West Reading, Sinking Spring, and Shillington might work too. I would recommend though that for either Reading or Lancaster to stay away from pure downtown (some areas are not that nice to walk in the dark if you know what I mean).http://www.lancasterchamber.com/
does have a number of web designers for which at least two use Joomla -- www.davenportdesign.net
and axiomwebworks.com (the chamber may have others, but these are two that I know work in Joomla). I would think there are Joomla designers / developers in the Berks County chamber as well.
From the little I know about the designers in either chamber, I would venture that they don't visit this forum often (at least I don't see them posting in the forum in any section... but then I don't live here <smile>). So it may pay to contact them individually outside the forum to see about interest levels.... unless the user group would be mainly individual admins, developers, designers... not sure (I apologize if I'm rambling).
