How do I become more involved with my world? (Volunteering, etc)

New Years Resolutions aside, I would like to become more involved with my community/state. Partially inspired by a group of amazing people at a soup dinner party, partially by the new year, and the rest as a long standing desire.
I put 150% effort into work, and am feeling slightly burnt out, and like its not really worth it as much as it used to be. I would like to try and cut back and work my 40hours, and have a life outside of work, meet new people, etc.
I am not exactly sure what I am looking to do, but I don't want to go door to door fixing Windows 95 PC's. :) I have decent management skills, network/it/programming skills, bow staff skills, etc. How do I apply myself/become involved with local groups, be it paid consulting, volunteering for something (I don't know where to look locally for 'we need help' types of things). I have applied via email/phone to a couple local groups that I thought I might have something to offer, and was ignored/actively turned down/passively turned down.
I do have a 9-5 job.
