Usability Professionals' Association
The Usability Professionals’ Association supports usability specialists, people from all aspects of human-centered design, and the broad family of disciplines that create the user experience in promoting the design and development of usable products.
Their goals are to:
· Provide an international network through which usability professionals can share information about the techniques and methodologies in the profession.
· Create an inclusive community for those interested in usability, whether it is their primary focus or a related discipline.
· Change new product development processes to include a concern for the people who use them by presenting the business case for usability in product development to colleagues, customers, the public and governmental agencies.
· Increase the body of knowledge about usability and user-centered design through professional education, meetings and conventions and other professional interchanges
