Regina SAS User Group
The semi-annual Regina SAS User Group meetings offers presentations, discussions and networking opportunities which can help Regina SAS users get the most out of their SAS software.
Currently, the model consists of two half-day meetings. The first day is a traditional SAS user group: technical presentations from local presenters as well as guest speakers to help SAS users gain exposure and understanding of their existing SAS software installations. The second day is a more business-level event with presentations geared towards better understanding business analytics and how they are employed in a variety of environments. This model may change as we continue to grow and evolve the group.
The next meeting will take place Thursday, March 13, 2014 at the Delta Regina. A detailed agenda follows below, and you may register here.
