SESUG (Southeast SAS Users Group Conference) is an annual conference held in the Southeast US - typically in September or October. This year, the conference will be held at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center in Durham, North Carolina, October 14-16.
According to Peter Eberhardt, SESUG 2012 Academic Chair, the SESUG 2011 Junior Professional Program (new in 2011) was very successful. "I am proud to say, that for 2012 we are continuing the program. Check out our website for more details."
The grant covers conference registration and one four-hour workshop. Workshops will be offered on Sunday at 11:30 am. Travel expenses and food are not covered. Junior Professionals presenting a paper will get priority consideration.
To qualify, applicants must have been using SAS in their job for 36 months or less and would otherwise not be funded by their company to attend the conference.
"The important date to remember is June 4, when applications will be available," says Eberhardt. "But, you don't have to wait until then to get more information. Check out our website and contact Barbara or Deb with any questions you might have."
