IxDA Local Groups
2008

Did you know that IxDA has over FIFTY IxDA Local Groups around the
world? IxDA St. Petersburg (Russia)... to IxDA Belo Horizonte
(Brazil)... to IxDA Columbus (Ohio), word is spreading and people are
gathering to bring IxD topics to life within their communities of
practice.

Check out our growing list here: www.ixda.org/local.php

There are many ways for you to be involved with IxDA Local Groups
outside of this list!

1. Attend a local event in an area near you
Check out the list of local groups and contact them directly. Even
better, raise your hand and volunteer to help out. You can help your
Local Group thrive!

2. Start a local group in your area
If you don't see your area listed, contact localgroups(at)ixda.org and
we'll let you know if something is already starting or if you should
take the lead and get a group going. Big or small, Local Groups take
many different shapes. Start one!

3. Help IxDA Local Groups at a global level
Want to be involved in supporting Local Groups around the world? In
order to keep this great momentum going, we're in need of a few good
men and women to:

- help create support materials for our local groups
- start gathering best practices that new groups can learn from
- manage day-to-day local group requests
- reach out to groups that are just starting up and need a boost of inspiration
- encourage participants to join or start Local Groups at Interaction09
- write occasional local group spotlights to demonstrate how Local
Groups are working in different locations

It's a passionate group of people to work with, and a great way to get
to know fellow IxDAers from around the world. Please contact Janna at
localgroups(at)ixda.org if you're interested.

I'd love to get something going here in Vancouver, BC as well.
We're lucky enough to be holding the Interaction09 coming up in Feb, but I'm
sure we've got enough people here in this busy hub to arrange some monthly
or bimonthly get togethers. There are plenty of venues that would be
receptive to the idea.

Shaun,

It's not too terribly far, but Portland has a semi-active group (and I think
Seattle does too). I can give you contact info offline if you wish.

Cheers!
David

I don't know if anyone here is in Wellington, New Zealand, but we have a

interaction design. If you're interested in coming, sign up to our mailing
list:

http://groups.google.co.nz/group/wellington-usability-lunch

Its a bring your own lunch, very informal type thing.

What happened to IxDA London? I went to one of the meets back in May
but it seems to have fizzled out since then. I'd be keen to help get
it going again.

Never fear, London hasn't fizzled out! Work commitments on all fronts
have put things on hold slightly (difficult when the group is getting
on its feet).

I alone have been out of the country for five and a half of every
seven days over the last three months.

There'll be an event announcement soon.

Regards,

Alex.
