If you look into the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA), you'll see they have chapters in many parts of the country, including Northern Virginia, Baltimore, and DC itself (see the US Chapter map for more info). In addition to providing ongoing education and information delivery at monthly meetings, they also have a great people networking opportunity (one good way to find work) as well as job postings (another, more obvious way to do the same). You should probably also investigate postings available through the ISC-squared Web site only to CISSPs as well.
Only if this initial search doesn't land you in a job (and frankly, given your background and experience, I'll be surprised if it doesn't), you should consider more training or certification. If that does happen, please post again and I'll be happy to advise further and to answer any follow-up questions you might have.
