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 description

At the request of Jennifer Swett Chrisman, I'm rescheduling this coffee meet-up for May. It turns out that IDF San Francisco will gather on April 13 in San Francisco. Speaker Mike Tschudy is scheduled to speak as part of the group's "Design for Change Series."

Hope to see you in May in Menlo Park!

21 IDF members (and some non-members) are attending:

Meet-up discussion

Hi all! Please use this discussion thread to discuss Coffee Meet-Up held on Apr 11, 2018. Feel free to ask questions about the place, date and time, agenda of the meeting, or anything else.

Hi Criscilla, IDF SF is hosting our monthly meet-up on Friday April 13th at California College of the Arts in SF. If you don't mind, as Local Leaders we would like to merge the two meetups to maximize attendance and avoid confusion. We have a speaker scheduled, Mike Tschudy in our Design for Change Series. Otherwise perhaps you could reschedule later this month? Thanks.

Hi Jennifer. Yes, let's merge these two meet ups to maximize attendance at the April 13 California College of the Arts event with a scheduled speaker. I'm unable to reschedule the Menlo Park meetup for April due to my own schedule. However, I'll reschedule for May.

I was just about to reschedule the Coffee MeetUp for our group that I had planned for April in Menlo Park, when I realized that I'm not sure if the new May date I choose will conflict with our group's pre-scheduled meetups. Would it be possible to have group events organized by Local Leaders listed in this platform? (I'm assuming they are listed on Facebook, but I am not an active user of that platform.)

Hello Criscillia. Could you please let me know if there's an agenda yet for this meetup? Thanks.

Hi all,
really excited to join IDF community!
I'm planning on attending the upcoming meetup but I'm not sure I'll be able to make it by 3.30 pm. Is 4.30 pm still okay to show up?

Looking forward to making new connections!

Hello Tamara! I'm looking forward to meeting you. I'm rescheduling the event for May, so that it doesn't draw attention away from an April 13 "Design for Change" event with a scheduled speaker. This event is also hosted by IDF San Francisco. If I don't see you there, I hope to see you in May in Menlo Park!

Hey hi,

I am a Graphic designer and totally new to UX design, I am planning to attend the upcoming meet up... Whats the agenda of this meet up? Any special topics, because I am totally new to this concept.

Thank you

Hello Shruti! I'm rescheduling this event for May, so that it does not draw attention away from an April 13 "Design for Change" event organized by IDF San Francisco.

The good news is this delay will allow for more time to think of an agenda that will be useful and attractive to our community. Are there special topics that you're interested in discussing? lmk

I look forward to meeting you in Menlo Park in May!

Hi IDF SF is hosting an IDF meet-up at CCA on Friday the 13th 6 PM for snacks and networking. Talk starts at 6:30. Would like to propose merging the Menlo Park Coffee meet-up into the meet-up on Friday in SF.

Would love to know what are the "Best Practices for UX Designers."

Great! Please let me know what other topics interest you. Looking forward to meeting you in Menlo Park in May!

Hi Crisillia, Please reschedule for May (any day except May 24th). Hope to see you Friday, April 13th at 6 PM at the Design for Change Lecture at California College of the Arts. Thank you!

I would like to schedule a mee-tup for the east bay - are there any east bay folks here that want to participate?

Hi, I just joined this community from Menlo Park, so I am very interested in local future events!
