Today's highlights from the Conference Chair


~Lori Griffin, Conference Chair~

It’s the last full day of SAS® Global Forum, and I hope you’re enjoying the conference as much as I am. This is my 17th time at SAS Global Forum (formerly SUGI), but serving as conference chair, I’ve gotten to see firsthand what it takes to put on a large-scale event like this one.

So much coordination, time and effort went into making this a successful conference and I would like to take a moment to thank the conference leaders for their contributions. From section chairs to Industry Solution leaders, session coordinators to presenters, we could not have done it without you.

But the conference is not over yet – there is much more for you to do and see today! Be sure to check out the Industry Solutions from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. today on the National Harbor Level. Experts will discuss how SAS technology can help achieve goals in specific industry areas.

And the networking opportunities continue with today’s lunch and featured presentation. Join us in Prince George Level, Exhibit Hall A at noon for lunch – and to see Arthur Benjamin, PhD, “America’s Best Math Whiz”, demonstrate how to mentally add and multiply numbers faster than a calculator and other amazing feats. Check at Conference Registration to see if tickets are still available for this event.

At the end of your busy day, you’ll get to relax at the always-fun Kick Back Party. Escapade, a wonderful show and dance band, will provide the entertainment in the Potomac Ballroom starting at 8 p.m. Food, drink and dancing await you, so come out and celebrate a successful conference!

Have a great day!
