MiUPA Elects Board, Seeks Volunteers For Committees
The Michigan Usability Professionals Association Friday released the results of recent board elections, named its 2011 officers, and announced that it’s seeking volunteers for several new committees.
Returning as president is Mike Beasley. New as vice president is Mike Elledge. Also new are Kelly Sattler as director of events and Jean Schiller as treasurer. Returning as secretary is Deborah Edwards-Onoro.
Those who would like to vote in future elections must become a member of the international UPA at www.usabilityprofessionals.org. Membership also includes meeting discounts.
The MiUPA also announced that it is organizing three new committees:
* Events planning: As a part of this committee, you can help plan Michigan UPA events. Have a topic you’re interested in? You can make sure we do a meeting on it!
* Outreach: This committee will help us reach out to people who don’t know much about MI UPA and tell them about it, and maybe even find ways for us to work together. You may reach out to usability-related professionals that haven’t heard about the chapter, students, and even other professional organizations
* Development: Want to think far ahead about what the chapter will look like and what it’ll be doing? This is the committee for you. This committee also focuses on strategies for developing funding for the chapter.
Those interested should contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The UPA also indicated it’s open to new ideas, so thos interested in being involved in another area, such as helping form an education committee, should also e-mail.
