  • Professional IA/UX Organizations - How to start and run a successful local group or chapter

    by Kyle Soucy

    The growth of the IA/UX industry has seen the birth of numerous related professional organizations with many local chapters and groups supporting them all around the globe, but there is more work that needs to be done. Existing chapters and groups need support and guidance to ensure continued growth and there are still vast regions that are in need of their own chapters and groups. Regions with strong IA/UX groups help sustain the growth of the industry in that area, which is one of the reasons why even more IA/UX groups are needed.

    During this session we’ll take a look at what professional organizations and local chapters/groups already exist and why you should get involved in one or start your own. Kyle and Nasir have experience starting, running, and organizing different industry groups and they’ll share the experiences they’ve had working with PhillyCHI, NHUPA, and NYC IxDA. They’ve learned through trial and error what meetings work well and what don’t. They know how to keep the momentum of a group going strong! You will learn from them:

    Good meeting ideas
    How to find venues, sponsors, and speakers
    How to promote your events
    Pitfalls to avoid in running your group
    How to deal with limited volunteer help
    How to start your own chapter or group

    At 11:45am to 12:30pm, Sunday 22nd March
