Your Safety and Well-Being Are Paramount to Us

In-Person Spring User Group Meetings Cancelled. Engage With Us Digitally.

Our top priority is the health and well-being of our attendees and employees. After careful consideration of the evolving concerns around COVID-19, SAS has made the very difficult decision to cancel in-person events until June 30, 2020.

We recognize that canceling our physical event presents some inconveniences to you. We are just as disappointed – nothing replaces the energy you get from being together in one location. But we are excited to connect and engage with you – just virtually. We are working to finalize the details and look forward to trying new things with you soon.

Canadian User Groups

Learn from your peers and SAS experts.

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.

Through presentations, demos, panel discussions, and Q&A sessions, SAS User Groups provide an excellent opportunity to expand your knowledge.  

  • 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.
