What's going on at SESUG 2011?


Academic Chair Barbara Okerson and Operations Team Lead Marje Fecht are chairing the 2011 SouthEast SAS Users Group (SESUG) conference. This year's conference will be held in another wonderful historical city slightly north of the 2010 Savannah location; it'll be located in Alexandria, Virginia, October 23 - 25. The format for this year's conference will also change somewhat and will include breakfast and a keynote speaker both mornings. Listen as Monday morning's keynote speaker, Rick Langston, gives a very brief overview of the conference:

Keep your eye on prize
As you now know, Rick Langston, manager of the Core Systems Department at SAS, and Kirk Lafler, a consultant and founder of Software Intelligence Corporation, will be the keynote speakers. There are many other fantastic sessions for you to choose from:

  • Code Doctor clinics are available in the Demo Room. Bring your problematic SAS code and processes (in hard copy or electronic form) for a one-on-one consultation with experts from the SAS user community.
  • Three new academic sessions: Government & Healthcare Applications, Step by Step and JMP.
  • Additional training opportunities can be found in the pre- and post-conference workshops. Talented, recognized and experienced instructors will be offering four, half-day sessions on Sunday and two on Tuesday for those who are interested in taking more in-depth training.

Conference and hotel registrations are now open. You can keep track of all of the conference information on the SESUG 2011 website, and connect with conference attendees on LinkedIN. One last thing, do you Tweet? Follow Twitter users @SRT_SESUG, @ANWZimmerman and @WaynetteTubbs before and during the conference to learn what's going on and what they think is the best of SESUG. You can also follow the hashtag #SESUG11 and post your own "best of" tweets while you're in Alexandria.
