I am trying to search for any person within a specified group in Civi that has NOT registered for a specific event. The intention is to then send them all an e-mail to ask why they have not yet registered, encourage registration, etc.

I'm stumped as to how to search for people who have not registered for an event.

First, create a group of people who have registered. Next, go to Search menu > Custom Searches, and select Include/Exclude by Group/Tag. Include the group of people who should have registered, exclude those who have already registered, and there's your list.

I believe you can also do a similar include/exclude search using Search Builder in Civi 4.6, but this was broken in earlier versions so I haven't tried.
