Who We Are
Austin UXPA is a local chapter of the User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA). We are a volunteer-run organization with the goal of providing educational and networking events for designers, researchers, information architects and developers.
Are there dues?
At this time, we do not charge chapter dues. We depend on and encourage the UX community to participate to chose topics, provide meetings locations and take part in lively banter discussions.
