The Interaction Design Association (IxDA) is accepting nominations to the 2014-2016 IxDA Board of Directors. As a volunteer-led and supported organization with no paid membership and largely virtual operations, IxDA relies on leadership emerging directly from the global community. We are seeking highly motivated and passionate individuals, ready to shape and guide the organization in furthering IxDA's goals and mission. Nominations will be accepted until Sunday, June 30, 2013, at 11:59 pm EST.
If you are considering going back to school in the fall, I would like to invite you to apply to Austin Center for Design. AC4D is located in Austin, Texas, and our program is one-year long; classes are held on nights and weekends, and the program is an affordable $12,000. We offer a unique combination of courses in interaction design and in social entrepreneurship, and many of our students go on to found and run their own double-bottom-line businesses.
Hack Night SLC is just around the corner (Feb 21) and we finally got the website launched this evening. Hack Night SLC is a free event open to everyone, focused on providing an opportunity for developers, designers, students, etc. to gather and work on projects in a collaborative evnironment. There will be free food, and it's going to be a great opportunity to get to know the community here in the valley a little bit better.
The IxDA is currently looking for volunteers to help with our main online platform, IxDA.org. If you've been looking for a great way to get involved and support our community and our volunteer run organization now is the time!
