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

Hi everyone!

Instead of the usual coffee shop or bar, let's enjoy what's left of our summer with a lowkey picnic to talk UX, network and hangout on a beautiful Saturday. Let's share UX design insights and resources, discuss projects or issues you are facing now, or just chat about anything else.

It's going to be an informal, cozy meet-up where I will bring some blankets for us to sit, some water, bread (freshly baked by yours truly) and fruit.

Bringing a snack to pass is not required, however, it would certainly be nice!

We'll be located in Central Park, north of 7th Ave, just north of the Dipway Arch. There should be plenty of shade and beautiful views; a nice escape from the noisy city.

Be on the lookout for a group with IDF signs!

Meet-up discussion

Hi all! Please use this discussion thread to discuss UX Summer Picnic held on Aug 17, 2019. Feel free to ask questions about the place, date and time, agenda of the meeting, or anything else.

With my previous life as a landscape architect I could not be happier about the location of this meetup! I'll come with no less than three blankets, some sunscreen and a few types of cheese to share.

Hello Devin, would love to join the picnic. Could I know the time, location and the agenda of the event? Thanks.

Hey Tirtho, the time and location are noted above! (12pm–2pm EST) just north of the Dipway Arch in Central Park, Manhattan, NY. As per the agenda, we are going to have some structured introductions/ice breakers then really just relax, talk UX and have a great time!

What a great idea! I'm very interested. What are the details: place, time, food arrangements, etc?

Hey Paula, glad you think so! The details can be found above. It will be from 12pm–2pm EST, just north of the Dipway Arch in Central Park, Manhattan, NY. I will bring fruit, waters, and freshly baked bread. Outside of that, anything you bring is fair game!

excited to join this event as well and meet new people.

Excellent! Looking forward to it.

Great! Looking forward to it.

Hey everyone! I know it looks like there may be inclement weather tomorrow BUT my hopes are high! I will keep my eye out and will cancel if it is thunderstorming. If it is only a light trickle, I will push on!

Excited to see everyone tomorrow!

I'm really looking forward to the meet up and hope it doesn't rain. It would be fantastic to finally meet UXers and discuss the field, the work and love of making this lovable and usable by all. I will be bringing some munchies with me for sure. I'd bring my furry class partner too, but she's scared of new people, loud noises and if you're not a bug, a bird or a squirrel or another cat, she's not interested.

I am so excited also! See you there!!

To all: THE PICNIC IS STILL ON! It's overcast outside but shouldn't rain or thunderstorm. See you all there!

I'll be late but I'm on my way from NJ!
