Professional Organization Memberships

So I'm new to the professional world, and I've been asked to figure out what
membership I want (ala ACM, AIGA, etc).

I'm not really sure what's best to join, so I was wondering what you all
would recommend?

For background - I studied Psychology and HCI, and I'm working in
Information Design (combo design work and HCI work).

Design Thinking and The Black Swan

Design thinking is about creating a narrative of activity, or of
modeling a behavior and designing solutions that will ensure the
expected or anticipated behavior. We typically find ourselves telling
a story of how someone experiences or interacts with a physical device
or service. Much of what design encompasses is narrative.

I have recently been reading The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
and the implications this has on design thinking is striking.

Event:10/28 NYC UPA - Will Website Usability Decide the 2008 Presidential Election?

NYC Usability Professionals Association presents:

*Usability Research on Undecided Voters:
Will Website Usability Decide the 2008 Presidential Election?*

In an age of media overload, how do undecided voters make up their minds in
the upcoming election? Do Web savvy Americans turn to the Web for answers
and if so, how much influence do the candidates' Websites have? Could the
usability of the Obama & McCain sites have a significant impact on the way
people perceive each candidate?
