Past Meeting Summary

Since 2003, Boston-IA meetings and special events have gathered people from all disciplines who design web sites, web applications, user interactions, content, and visual designs for delivery over the World Wide Web or other electronic media.

Our topics have been geared to bringing these professionals the information they need to make their designs more accessible.
