2011 is off to a great start.
We have a very energetic and enthusiastic group of volunteers in the Executive Council. Please join me in welcoming them:
Secretary and Treasurer: Don Sugar
Co-Directors of Community Programs: Jake Geib-Rosch and Richard Phelps
Co-Directors of Professional Development: Teri Brooks and Leslie Tudor
Director of Marketing & Communications: Dorian Van Gorder
Director of Membership: Laura Blanchard
Director of Social Programs: Evan Carroll
Director of Technology: Katrina Lee
We held several events in the first quarter. The Professional Events team hosted a talk by Andrew Hinton on Information Architecture as well as several UIE Webinars, which have been extremely well-attended and insightful. We will continue to host Webinars throughout the year.
The main focus of this year’s training is on two topics that stood out in the survey we did last yearundefined Mobile User Interface Design and User Experience in an Agile World. We hope to organize a couple of training events for each of these areas to provide different viewpoints and approaches to these topics.
On the Community Events side of things, we are planning several exciting events starting in April. The first event is a presentation by Professor James Lester of NC State on highly interactive user interfaces.
In May, we will bring a panel of practitioners together for a discussion on Visualization. In October, we plan on holding a BarCamp event where participants will work on several specific design problems with advice from several experts. So, please start getting your problems ready!
As we work through the schedule of events, we will keep you informed with our digest-style emails. If you have any comments or concerns please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
