It’s that time of year again. We are raising funds for our next year of programming and we’d love you to join us in supporting the interactive design community in West Michigan.

We had a phenomenal year last year! We hosted over 850 people at IxDA chapter meetings, a regional conference (Midwest UX), and our participation in UX Thursday Detroit. In all we provided over 7,000 person-hours of training for free. Of course it wasn’t truly free. Our wonderful sponsors made this all possible. But even if we calculate the total cost to the community it works out to a ridiculously inexpensive $6/person-hour of training.

We are proud of what we accomplished over the last year and are excited to gear up for another year of great talks, events, and networking opportunities. So now we are asking our community to stand behind us again.

Would you consider joining us in educating our community and raising West Michigan’s profile nationally through sponsorship of the IxDA?

We already have speakers scheduled and confirmed every month from now till December and we can’t wait to share them with you. With all of the scheduling out of the way we’re gearing up to expand our programming in creative ways.

IxDA is an investment I’m sure you will agree is worth making. An investment in your team’s professional development, in our community’s growth in the area of Interaction and User Experience design, and in the future of West Michigan.
