Triangle User Experience Professionals Association (TriUXPA)

About the Triangle UXPA

The Triangle UXPA was founded in 2005 and is the North Carolina Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill chapter of the User Experience Professionals Association. We are focused on building and supporting the local community of practitioners who craft great user experiences — which include interaction designers, visual designers, information architects, content strategists, and user researchers.


Our mission is to add value to the local UX community of practice through:

  • Engagement and participation
  • Learning and continuing education
  • Mentoring and professional development
  • Connections and community


The core activity of Triangle UXPA is holding great events to bring people in the community together, and disseminate information and practices related to user experience work. Events include:

    • Professional development courses
    • Community learning events
    • Social events
Some of speakers we've hosted include: Adam Connor (2015), Jeff Patton (2015), Jason Cranford Teague (2014), Whitney Quesenbery (2014), Tomer Sharon (2012), Carol Barnum (2012), Jeff Gothelf (2012), Josh Clark (2012 & 2011), and Leah Buley (2010).
