Toronto Area SAS Society (TASS)

The quarterly TASS meetings offer presentations, discussions and networking opportunities which can help Toronto-area SAS users get the most out of their SAS software.

TASS has split into two focus areas in an effort to better serve the diverse needs of SAS users in the Toronto community. The meeting format is an all-day session, with coding-related topics presented in the morning at the ‘Classic’ TASS meeting, and SAS ‘interface’ related topics (e.g. Enterprise Guide, Enterprise Miner) being delivered in the afternoon. All are welcome to attend either – or both – of the sessions.

The Next TASS meeting will take place in March 2015. Please check back in the New Year for more information.
