Dear UPA Meetup Members:
After a long dormant period, it’s time for the LA Usability Professionals Meetup to get rocking again! I recently came on board as the new organizer for this Meetup. We have just finalized plans for a Meetup on May 18 at CSULA called ‘Guerilla Research.’ And we are hoping to elect new officers and submit our UPA Los Angeles chapter application before this summer.
If you are a paying UPA member (or willing to become one) and wish to become an active member or officer of UPA Los Angeles, please email me at [address removed]. Membership in the national organization is $100 per year for professionals and $35 for students. Learn more at www.usabilityprofessionals.org. We must have a minimum of ten paying members of the international organization to petition for official chapter status.
I would like to hold an organizing meeting prior to the next Meetup. At the organizing meeting we will elect officers and sign chapter bylaws for submission to the international UPA Association office. Please email me directly to let me know if you could attend a dinnertime meeting either 5/3 or 5/4. Tell me which day(s) you can meet and what area of LA you’d be coming from so that we can accommodate as many people as possible.
I look forward to an active new year of camaraderie and sharing for usability pros in LA!
