If you're interested in WordPress, the Philly WordPress Meetup meets the third Thirsday of every month at City Coho (24th and Walnut) starting at 6:30. We're always looking for fresh faces at the meetup and we generally field a decent number of questions, so we'd be happy to help however we can.
Also, we have the first(!) WordCamp U.S. (national WordPress conference) coming up December 4-6 of this year at the Convention Center. Two days of speakers and networking opportunities with around 2,000 WordPress community members and professionals. Tickets will go up soon at https://2015.us.wordcamp.org
(site is still in progress -- our designers are a bit tardy with the final site design, alas).
Since you're familiar with html and static pages I'd recommend a theme of some sort to "wrap" your pages in. If you're going to do more than 5 or 10 pages, or if you're going to be changing them frequently, then yes, wordpress. It even updates itself.
I don't know where these themes are but google is your friend (or at least a knowledgeable associate.) About 10 years ago I used the Aura theme from Leorex pty. and was happy with the result. Sadly, those urls are now "not found".
