Why not head over to LOPSA and join one of their lists?  

The League of Professional System Administrators (LOPSA) is a nonprofit
corporation with members throughout the world. Our mission is to advance
the practice of system administration; to support, recognize, educate,
and encourage its practitioners; and to serve the public through
education and outreach on system administration issues.

LOPSA membership benefits fall into two classes. The first involves
support of you as a member and a sysadmin. LOPSA is working to provide
educational and networking opportunities, a forum for support and ideas,
and an active community engaged in discussion of sysadmin issues.

I've always though communities making *-offtopic lists didn't make much
sense - go find an on-topic list.
