Lily Basile – Volunteer Spotlight

Sara Mastro, UXPA International President sits down with Lily Basile to discuss her volunteering with UXPA. How did you first learn about UXPA International? I learned about UXPA INTL through my job search! I’d found the website and had also met Ginny Hong, through a General Assembly portfolio review (UX bootcamp), and she let me know about the volunteer opportunities to get involved and help out! What are your activities as a UXPA Intl Volunteer? As the volunteer Visual Designer, I design the social graphics for the UXPA’s Facebook and Twitter. These graphics consist of webinar promos, job bank promos, mentorship cohort sign up flyers and more! What motivated you to become a volunteer with us? As a new grad of …

Welcome 2021!

I know I am stating the obvious when I say “2020 was a pretty stressful year”.   From the perspective of UXPA organizationally, it was also a year where we all had to wear many hats and be super flexible.

Happy 2020! New Year, New Possibilities!

I hope everyone had a healthy and relaxing holiday season. 2019 was a busy one for our UXPA International Board! We presented some great online courses and webinars, held a fantastic annual conference in Scottsdale, AZ and had our first ever Latin American conference in Chile, UXLat. We reworked our website, helped provide more support for our local chapters and published more excellent content in both our magazine and journal. Sadly, we also had to see the departure of three of our amazing Board members, who terms ended December 2019. Jen Romano Bergstrom (past President and Past Marketing Director), Jean Fox (our Director of Finance/Treasurer extraordinaire) and Lauren Schaefer (Past Marketing Director, Director of Web). While these awesome women will …
