What are Local Groups?

IDF Local Groups will expand your local career network - whether you are interested in learning new skills, looking for new job opportunities, new clients for your company, or a great new dedicated employee.

An IDF Local Group is a group of people who are just as passionate about design as you are. Each Local Group holds physical meetings and the agenda is to get inspired, discuss, have fun, learn and improve your career. Meetings take place in a relaxed and fun atmosphere at a local cafe, an office building, or an auditorium depending on the agenda for the meeting. For each Local Group there is also an online Local Group so you can stay in touch and help update each other on local events.

Meet-up discussion

Happy New Year!

I'm a product design (UX) manager at Epiq. I recently started my first course "Interaction Design for Usability." I'm looking forward to meeting some local IDFers and hearing more about your experiences.

Hi Danielle! Thank you for introducing yourself :) I've also enrolled in that course and look forward to meeting you and talking. See you soon!

Hi everyone,

I'm a graphic designer, eager to learn more about UX/UI Design.
Looking forward to meet you all!

Hey Macarena! Thanks for saying hi to the group. I'm glad you can attend this meet-up and I look forward to meeting you in person soon :)

Hi everyone! I'm an account manager at a software company. Currently working on an MLIS with a specialization in UX design. I'm hoping to learn more from these IDF classes and my school coursework to make a career shift. Also, it will be nice to network with folks either already in the industry or with a similar path.

Hi Christine, thanks for introducing yourself. I am also passionate about information and system design! I look forward to meeting you this Saturday and working together in IDF. Kindly, Johanna
