I'd like to attend the upcoming SAS® Professionals Convention, 24-26 June, 2014 in Marlow. It's the best way to make sure we're getting the most out of our SAS investment.

What makes this conference special?
- Customisable agenda. The flexible format allows me to choose topics that are relevant to my role and skill level

I can apply what I learn to the following projects:

By attending, I am serving as an ambassador for our organisation and recognise the importance of this responsibility. I will provide a post-conference summary and can debrief our team on what I learned.
At the SAS Professionals Convention , I'll be able to learn more, develop my career and networks with others to get new ideas and perspectives. You can learn more about the conference at www.sas.com/uk/sasprofs2014 . Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to your reply.
