Triangle UXPA History PDF


TriUXPA will build a community for established and aspiring UX professionals by

    • facilitating the delivery of training, knowledge sharing, and career development opportunities,
    • working internally to ensure continuity and maintain an organization that is financially sound,
    • and by partnering with sponsors, members, and external organizations 

in a spirit of connection, collaboration, inclusion, and mutual support.
