About the Triangle UXPA

The Triangle UXPA was founded in 2006 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.
