Local User Group Websites (NJ/NY/CT/PA/DE)

I attended the NYC Microsoft Heroes Happen Here Launch event on 3/4/08.  My role in attending this event was to represent PASS and the local user groups at the Community User Group Table.  As the day went on, it became more apparent to me that folks are having a difficult time finding the websites of the local user groups.  Peter Laudati (NY/NJ/CT Developer Evalgelist) does a great job of blogging about the monthly events scheduled for the local user groups (http://blogs.msdn.com/peterlau/), but selfishly I wanted to capture just the user group websites for me (and of course for you…).
