Dear SAS User,

It has been a very busy fall and winter so far at SSC.  We are pleased that so many organizations are making long term investments in the professional development of their staff, and we are excited about many of the innovative consulting solutions we are working on.


With the help of Brenda Tredinnick, a valuable new member of our staff, we have launched our new website and a brand new newsletter format.  The Missing Semicolon will be an HTML email that will be sent out monthly.  I very much appreciate any feedback you have on the new format.  As always, our goal is to provide you with a valuable technical resource, keep you up to date on what's new in the SAS world, and what's happening at SSC.


Thanks for Reading!
