Next Manchester Meeting 4th April 6.45

Topic: how can we make the UPA  Less London-Centric?

In a slight departure from our usual format we will be discussing how NUX relates to the Usability Professionals Association.

The UPA has recently appointed a regional liaison officer charged with making the organisation less london-centric.  I’m waiting for some details on specific feedback that he wants to gather, but some points to consider might be:

  • What are our experiences, good and bad with the UPA so far?
  • If the UPA does expand its activity in the North, is there still a role for NUX?
  • If the UPA were willing to fund speakers, regional conferences etc, would you be willing to merge NUX into a regional arm of the UPA?
  • If you are a member, how valuable do you find membership? If you’re not a member or are a lapsed member, what are the reasons?


As usual, everyone is welcome but the session is of particular relevance to UX practitioners, whether  UPA member or not.

We will be in our usual venue:
