The User Experience Professionals Association of Minnesota (UXPA-MN) is a community of user-centered advocates. We bring new concepts, techniques, and perspectives to our members and other UX practitioners through events, education, and professional networking.
UXPA Minnesota is a chapter of UXPA International, which offers its own, separate membership and "supports people who research, design, and evaluate the user experience (UX) of products and services." Read more about UXPA International at their site.
We are a professional group from mixed backgrounds who recognize the need for the voice of the end user of any experience. Some of us have formal education in human factors or technology, while others came into UX from a completely different field. All levels of experience and interest are welcome!
Our board is comprised of volunteer members who serve one to three year terms for various positions, generating ideas and making decisions on chapter matters during monthly meetings and whenever needed.
Our primary focus is on events that bring together the amazing UX community of Minnesota. We host monthly events that include presentations, case studies, panel discussions, and roundtables on current topics and trends in UX. Events also provide an opportunity to network with local peers and employers. Our events are typically held on the second Thursday of the month, but we occasionally hold bonus events for additional education opportunities.
Check out our upcoming events. We can't wait to see you!
