SAS User 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 user group is an excellent way to help you get the most value from your SAS technology. User groups offer a unique opportunity to:

  • Discuss topics within helathcare and learn what's worked from other users and SAS profesionals dealing with similar challenges.
  • Get an immediate return on your time investment. Learn techniques and skills you can apply as soon as you return to work.
  • Expand your network and tap into local SAS resources.

We look forward to seeing you on April 5th!
