The holidays are upon us and I wanted to make mention to you are looking to all of you to get the word out to your friends and colleagues and have them join the Arizona UPA Chapter or at the very least make sure they get on our mailing list.
We had a nice turnout at the World Usability Day and had some people join up as well as sign up for the updates, but we'd like to get everybody we can involved in this chapter, either through regular email correspondence and updates or as actual Arizona UPA members.
We are finalizing the chapter paperwork and should have that resolved at the in December with the goal of having our first formal meeting in January 2009. Place/time are obviously TBD, but anyone and everyone that joins in December will essentially get December for free as we will be extending the 12-month membership to 13 months for all of our charter members. Just an incentinve to have you join this year and extend through December 2009.
Anyway, we'd like to hear from you as well about topics areas of focus to cover in 2009 as we will begin working on our agenda for the first 6 months of meetings this month. Any/all information, requests and suggestions are appreciated.
Again, thanks for signing up for updates here and joining (if you've done so already.) Keep spreading the word and sending colleagues this site link: http://www.arizonaupa.org.
We'll see/talk to you soon!!
