Ottawa SAS User Groups

Tuesday, November 20 | University of Ottawa
OASUS: 8:30 am - 11:30 pm  
OPUS: 12:45 pm - 3:30 pm

Cost: Complimentary

SAS Users Groups provide an excellent opportunity to meet other SAS users, share knowledge and experience, and learn more about SAS solutions from colleagues, peers and SAS professionals. Whether you're a seasoned SAS software user with experiences to share or a newcomer who'd like to interact with other users, a users group is an excellent way to help you get the most value from your SAS technology. Users groups offer a unique opportunity to:

  • Get an immediate return on your time investment. You can apply the techniques and skills you've learned as soon as you return to work.
  • Learn what's worked from other users and SAS professionals dealing with similar challenges
  • Get to know other SAS users and tap into local SAS resources

We look forward to seeing you on November 20th!

 

"SAS user groups embody the spirit of sharing and collaboration needed to discover and develop best practices. It is these intrinsic values that make each user group a success." Eric Lacombe, MONSUG President
