Customer Value Award

The Customer Value Award has been created to honour and reward an individual for their ongoing support in their local SAS community. The recipient of the award will receive a trip to SAS Global Forum (formerly SUGI) including: return airfare; hotel for up to 3 nights; registration costs; and an award to be presented at a special dinner at SAS Global Forum.

Examples include people who informally assist their peers, user group involvement or anyone who goes beyond the call of duty to assist SAS usage. See the bottom of the page for the ‘Customer Value Award Hall of Fame’.
