The Los Angeles User Experience Meetup Pages

The UX Meetup started in May of 2007 with a group of about 30 User Experience evangelists. This group recognized that even though there are a large number of people practicing various forms of User Experience Design, those professionals were disconnected and scattered throughout the sprawling Los Angeles metropolis. We decided that it was time for Los Angeles to have a thriving community of UX people that meet regularly.

At that first meeting, we agreed that:

a) The Meetup group would, for the time being, remain unaffiliated with any particular professional organizations

b) The group would be run on an ad-hoc and volunteer basis, with no official governing board

c) We would target meetings every other month, and

d) We would try to hold meetings across LA County, so that all of the community members would at some point have to travel long distance to attend.

e) We do not tolerate spam, off-topic postings or abusive messages. If a member posts inappropriate material, the person will be warned or banned. If a member of the group replies mentioning that the topic is inappropriate, then the topic should have no further responses. We rely upon the group to help monitor and review the content posted. If material is posted that violates this policy, please contact one of the organizers. Inappropriate messages will result in being banned from the group.

Well, the idea has really taken off! Since our first gathering in Glendale, the group has grown to more than 2,600 members.

The Meetup group remains unaffiliated with any particular professional organization, but still serves as a networking point (via the email list) and centralized calendar for UX related events in Southern California. Joining the Meetup doesn't automatically make you a member of these groups but you will at least be notified when they meet in Los Angeles.

Join the UX Meetup to stay abreast of all UX-related events. We collaborate with active local groups, like the IxDA Los Angeles, UXPA's Los Angeles chapter, UX Happy Hour, the IxDA Book club and other groups to coordinate schedules so that everyone in our community has a great, complementary schedule of events, speakers, etc.

UX Meetup encourages all types of professional development and participation. The following is a partial list of national and international professional organizations that hold events in Los Angeles:

* LA - Usability Professionals' Association Chapter (
* UX Book Club Los Angeles (
* IxDA Los Angeles (
* Orange County User Experience (
* IAI (http://www.iainstitut... )
* SIG-IA ( )
* UXPA (http://www.upassoc.or... )
