What Would It Mean to Become a UPA Chapter
Your survey responses told us that the majority of you would be interested
in joining a local UPA (Usability Professionals Association) chapter. As we
explore the possibility of becoming a chapter, we thought it would be
interesting to hear from someone whos been an integral part of the most
successful UPA chapter in the world, Boston UPA
Chauncey Wilson, a founding member and past president of Boston UPA, will be
joining us at this meeting. Hell be giving a half hour talk on his
experience with Boston UPA, and answering your questions. Afterwards, we
invite everyone to take part in an informal group discussion on the future
of NH UX.
We hope youll take advantage of this great opportunity to meet Chauncey,
and to start thinking about what we might do as a local UPA chapter.
