Our mission is to provide a community for local user experience professionals and students to communicate, network, educate and celebrate!
We are a professional group from mixed backgrounds who speak for the end-user. Some of us have formal education in human factors, computer science, and technical communication, and some of us came into usability from a completely different field. Many of us just have project experience and a strong sense of interest. Regardless, we always make an impact.
We host monthly events that include presentations & case studies, panel discussions, and roundtables on current topics and trends in usability. Events also provide an opportunity to network with local peers and employers. These events are typically held on the second Thursday of the month.
Please see our listing of upcoming events. All are welcome to attend.
We originated in 1994, and were the first local UPA (now UXPA) chapter to be officially chartered by the International UPA in September 1999. We’ve been growing steadily ever since, increasing in members, volunteers, and associations in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Today, we have nearly 70 members. For more information about UXPA International, please visit the UXPA International web site.
UXPA Minnesota has a free mailing list to help the usability and user experience community stay in touch. To join only the mailing list, go to the membership application, and select "Mailing List Only."
If you like learning about user interaction and design or would like to share your experiences, come to a chapter event, join the UXPA MN Chapter, or contact us. We will be happy to help you get connected or provide a place for you to sharpen your usability knowledge.
