Is there anyone else like us out there? Help me find other copy editors in the business world for networking and discussion of best practices.

I work as a copy editor at a software company with between 10,000 and 20,000 employees. My small team is responsible for editing pretty much all the external business communications for the company, including web ads, emails, marketing pieces, and white papers (but no online help, user guides, etc. -- that's a different team). We would like to connect with other corporate copy editors to compare processes and best practices, but we're having serious trouble finding anybody who does what we do. We can find newspaper copy editors, technical editors, and marketing communications writers -- but nobody else quite like us.
Do you know of a professional association or other group that caters to our ilk? Even an online forum or Facebook group? Are you out there, corporate copy editors of Metafilter?
