Organizing CommitteesVolunteer with a committee and help shape UXPA
UXPA Boston is a professional association dedicated to promoting the field of User Experience (UX) in the Greater Boston and New England regions. Our organization brings together UX practitioners, designers, researchers, and professionals in related fields to foster knowledge sharing, networking, and skill development within the UX community.
UXPA Boston is a fully volunteer organization. All activities associated with it are conducted on a voluntary basis without compensation. However, it offers a unique opportunity to make a significant impact on the UX community in the Greater Boston and New England region. Our organizing committees work with the board of directors to provide programming and resources to our community. Helping on a committee is a great way to meet more of the community and see if serving on the board is something you would be interested in.
UXPA Boston is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion and encourages individuals from underrepresented groups to apply.
Please note that while committee members play a vital role in the organization, they do not have voting privileges in the board of director meetings. Read our bylaws for more information.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee
Most UX practitioners discover UX serendipitously in the course of their work life. As such, many people do not learn about UX until later in their careers. As a result, some people, especially in underserved or minority populations, may never know about UX. The Diversity Committee will work to get more students exposed to UX at an earlier age so they can take steps to aim for a UX career path. The committee will concentrate efforts on underserved or minority populations.
