What we're about

The Vancouver User Experience Group is a diverse community of practitioners and students who are passionate about building better experiences and honing our skills. We meet regularly to share innovative research, diverse perspectives and inspiring real-world examples.

Organizing team 

This group also meets 2 times per year to plan and execute the monthly event series. This team is responsible for planning the monthly event calendar, balancing the types of events held (presentations, workshops, panels, lightning talks, tours, etc), venues and logistics. Each event requires publication on Meetup, ticket management, on-site logistics and speaker coordination.

Finances
The financial mandate of VanUE is to run revenue-neutral events with the help and generosity of sponsors and volunteers. OXD manages the VanUE account for funds collected at the door for events. We have kept access affordable (typical monthly sessions cost $5-$10). Funds from these events are used to invest back in future events or speakers, or occasionally used to cover a portion of a social activity after the event. From time to time, when we bring in an out of town speaker or have a special event, tickets can be up to $20, but only to cover expenses of venue, catering and our speaker.

Sponsors
Founding sponsors include:
Habanero Consulting Group
OXD
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor to provide a venue or help with travel or costs for an out-of-town speaker, please contact one of the organizers via Meetup or at info@vanue.com.

Communications
Via Meetup, the organizers share announcements of official VanUE events (and sell related tickets), UX related job postings and occasional cross-posting of related, local UX events and activities. There are usually 4-6 announcements per month.
Meetup members have access to a moderated VanUE community message board and can post messages directly to vanue-list@meetup.com. Messages must be posted using the email account associated Meetup.

Speaker/event suggestions
Suggestions for UX related topics are always welcome by contacting us at info@vanue.com or by contacting the organizers on Meetup.

Volunteer opportunities
If you are a local UX practitioner or student and would like to help out with VanUE events, please contact info@vanue.com.
