What we're about

We are moments away from establishing a UXPA Chicago Chapter. Whether or not you are a member of UXPA, thinking of becoming one, or not, you are very much welcome to join! We are aiming to supplement the current meet ups and various UX groups in Chicago by focusing on user research, information architecture, team building and strategy.

About UXPA Membership

The User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA) is an international association devoted to assisting new and established professionals in the user experience disciplines.Through networking, publications, conferences and classes, UXPA can help you hone your skills and deepen your involvement in the UX community.

Our members are employed in a wide variety of disciplines, including product and service strategy, design, research, content and development. We are colleagues in pursuit of a common goal: better products and services, better working, and better living through usability.
