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:
- 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 October 18th.
