I'd love to take over the group if there is any interest. If the current manager would love some help, I'm totally cool with that also. I was VP of a local Mac User Group for years, and founder of the Adobe user groups here in KC. At Sprint, I do UI and UX for mobile apps, and I speak on wireframing, Fireworks, prototyping etc. I also run a conference here in town called D2W. It is a designer / developer / mobile workflow conference and we had our 3rd year here in town this year. 

I am planning a UI / UX Worshop or Camp whichever way you'd like to look at it, maybe in November, December depending on how our winter goes. If not this eyar, then early next. It will be a 1 day event, following 1 project throughout the day.

Morning Workshop 1: Requirements gathering and definition, personas and scenarios, intro to available web and mobile technologies

Morning Workshop 2: Flow diagrams, task analysis, UI sketching

LUNCH: chat with the trainers and each other

Afternoon Workshop 3: Wireframes, visual design basics, scenario mapping

Afternoon Workshop 4: Prototyping for web and mobile

DEMO: Teams show their work to each other for review, critique, and acclaim

DINNER & DRINKS: Celebrate their new skills and portfolio materials

Sounds rockin', I'd go to that.

As to the group, I really know nothing about it except that I joined a long time ago and forgot about it until I was emailed about this post. :)

I would like to see some traction with IxDA KC from Tyler or someone.  Lots of potental and a good starting locations for any IX and UX professionals that may move into the area. After attending conferences by other IxDA groups, it would be cool to see such an affiliation here in KC.  There are other conferences and groups in KC that would overlap; however, this would be a possible central location for a lot of other events.

Anyone else have any input on this?

Yes! And my apologies for the lack of activity. I have some notes on a regular schedule of events that I was planning earlier this year that I'll coalese and put in another thread.

Can we get together in the morning either this week or next? We can throw it out to the community, inviting anyone who wants to be involved. I can get some space at either VML office (Crossroads or downtown airport), but that might have to be next week due to availability. If there's a more central (to where we all are, not the city's geography) location, let's do that.
