Happy new year! Yes, I know we are well into January, but I think I can still say it since I have not seen most of you in person yet (and if I say “Happy New Year” when I see you at the annual conference in June, please tell me to stop). 2016 was a very successful year for UXPA – thank you to all our members, volunteers and sponsors who made this happen. Thank you especially to the Board of Directors, who I like to call “Team Doers.” It has been such a pleasure to work alongside you all, learning from each other, encouraging and motivating each other to get more things done for UX professionals and students, and having fun doing so! Thank you all for a wonderful 2016. I am looking forward to getting even more done in 2017!
