Get Involved

Our team is made up of the best and most influential in our design community, we’d love for you to join us.

Midwest UX wouldn’t be at its best without the help of our incredible and dedicated volunteers, and we’re looking to our community to lend a hand. Would you like to be behind the scenes to bring the conference to life? Or would you prefer to be a highly-visible, friendly face helping people at a venue? Regardless of how you like to work, there are a variety of ways for you to participate in the conference.
