Dear SAS User,
Since the beginning of the year, we have been preparing for 2012 SAS conferences. They are a great opportunity to network with other users, learn what's new and upcoming in SAS software, and share your tips with others.
We will be presenting papers at the SAS Global Forum in Orlando, April 22-25, 2012. Steve First will be presenting The SAS Log: A Wealth of Data and Job Flow Information. We will also be presenting Productivity Tips for SAS Enterprise Guide Users. If you are able to attend the conference, we hope to see you there!
I am also preparing for the Midwest SAS Users Group (MWSUG) in Minneapolis, MN, September 16-18, 2012. I will be co-chairing the BI Applications and Architecture section. I am also putting together ideas of papers that I could present. The call for papers will be opening March 12, so don't forget to submit your ideas at www.mwsug.org.
Finally, we are also starting the planning of our local meeting, Wisconsin SAS Users Group (WISUG). We will be having our annual meeting on May 3, 2012. We are finalizing speakers and details, so stay tuned for the formal invitation.
Please think about how you can be involved in SAS user groups. It is an inexpensive way to get training on a variety of topics, keep up to date with the latest technology, network with others in your industry, and share your knowledge with others. SAS conferences are definitely worth the time and cost for any SAS user.
Thanks for Reading!
