It's the start of a new IxDA chapter in Maryland, and the start of a new year; therefore, I think it's only appropriate that we start planning for our first event of the year. I'd like to put out a call out to all our IxDA Frederick members to submit ideas for what our first event should be. To kick things off, I'd like to propose our first event be more of a greet-and-meet to give us all an opportunity to get together and learn about each other. This would also serve as a great time to discuss what each of us would like to get out of this local IxDA chapter and to see how we would like it to grow. My view is that this IxDA Frederick belongs to all the members, so we can make of it what we want - keeping in mind our mission of course.

As IxDA Frederick is the first chapter in Maryland, I believe that it is important to welcome anyone in the Maryland area. Having said that,  I am happy to hold events that are most convenient for the majority of our members. If you have some ideas of where our first event can be held please send your ideas. Currently i'd be happy to get together anywhere in the Baltimore, Columbia, Montgomery County and Frederick County areas.

If you can submit ideas by no later than January 11th, we can start continue this thread and discuss our first event.

I look forward to hearing from you all.

I would be happy to host the event at our office in Gaithersburg Maryland.  Blue Atlas Interactive is located in Old Town Gaithersburg.

dbuonomo,

Sorry for the delayed response, but for some reason your comment did not appear in my inbox. If the offer still stands, I would love to talk to you about organizing this meet up. As I mentioned in my post, we are still a fledgling chapter so there is a lot of work to be done in getting organized, so I do really appreciate you volunteering your offices for this meet up. I think the next step is for us to exchange contact information so we can follow-up with each other, my cell number is 301-305-6068. I also, have your site URL so I will attempt to contact you later this week if I don't hear back from you. Thanks!

Hi Ludwing,

I haven't been on this site in a while and I just noticed your group in the Local map. I'm the local leader for IxDA-DC. If there's anything I can do to help get your group off the ground, please let me know.

Hi Kim,
Thanks so much for reaching out. We are a new chapter in the Maryland area and would greatly appreciate your help in getting our chapter off the ground. Recently we have researched other organizations in our area including Usability Professionals Association D.C. chapter. I'd love the opportunity to talk with you more about your chapter and learn from your experiences. Next month there is a Usability conference in D.C., If I'm not mistaken your chapter will be represented there as well. Perhaps we can meet up during the event and chat.
Thanks again,
