We finally seem to be moving away from a really cold winter and into spring. That means that SAS Global Forum is just around the corner. March 23-26 will find me and many of my SAS colleagues and SAS users in National Harbour, MD, just outside of Washington DC. Will you be there?
I was just reviewing the program for this year’s conference. Conference chair Marje Fecht, of Prowerk Consulting, will be heading up a very impressive conference. She and her team of content planners have put a lot of effort into creating an exciting line-up of invited and contributed papers and posters along with some really interesting keynote presenters. This team has focused on making the information relevant to what you do every day. (Speaking of Marje, she'd love to hear what you're looking forward to at SAS Global Forum. You can join her discussion here.)
In addition to having the chance to catch-up with friends from my years of being associated with SAS Global Forum, I always look forward to meeting new ones. I hope you will look me up in the Publications booth in the SAS demo area. There you will have a chance to peruse new books published this year and to buy them at a discount. You can also meet Publications staff who are always anxious to hear how we’re doing. While in the booth, play our game to test your SAS skills. Try to get on the leader board by getting the most correct answers!
We have about thirty of our authors who will be hanging out with us in the booth. Let them talk you into becoming a SAS author….All that SAS knowledge you have needs to be shared with other SAS users, and we can help you do that. These seasoned authors can give you the scoop on what it is like to work with SAS as your publisher.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Potential of One, Power of All.” Come join us next month at SAS Global Forum and find out for yourself how pertinent that theme really is. I hope to see you there.
