The Chesapeake Area Metalworkers Society (CAMS) http://www.cams-club..... has a long-established and active CNC special interest group.
CAMS CNC meets in Lorton, VA at the offices of Practical Micro Designs (pmdx.com) a manufacturer of CNC electronic devices.
The meetings usually have 8-12 people with a mix of skill levels from novice to expert. You'll absorb an amazing amount by attending, even more if you ask questions or bring along a project you need help with. The members attending vary from month to month but we have people who own CNC-equipped machine shops doing commercial work, home shop hobbiests who have retrofitted traditional equipment, and several who have built their own woodworking CNC routers.
The format of the meeting is very loose, we usually start a bit late to give everyone a chance to mingle and chat. The meeting begins with introductions which may include a brief mention of each person's interests and current projects. If we have a formal presentation planned this will come next, followed by informal discussion and Q&A opportunity. The meetings can run as late as 10:30 or even 11:00 but many early birds leave before then so don't feel you need to stay for the entire event.
Do make sure you bring your projects and machines to show to the group if you can or at least bring your videos, photos, and questions.
Don't be concerned if you only see 1 or 2 people RSVP here. Most group members aren't meetup.com regulars but instead get the meeting invites from our email listserv. If you have any doubts about a meeting being scheduled, contact me for more information.
