Vancouver SAS User Group Meeting – Wednesday, November 26, 2014, at Holiday Inn Vancouver-Centre (West Broadway)
November 19, 2014 Leave a comment
I am pleased to have recently joined the executive organizing team of the Vancouver SAS User Group. We hold meetings twice per year to allow Metro Vancouver users of all kinds of SAS products to share their knowledge, tips and advice with others. These events are free to attend, but registration is required.
Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 26, 2014. Starting from 8:30 am, a free breakfast will be served while registration takes place. The session will begin at 9:00 am and end at 12:30 pm with a prize draw.
Please note that there is a new location for this meeting: the East and Centre Ballrooms at Holiday Inn Vancouver-Centre at 711 West Broadway in Vancouver. We will also experiment with holding a half-day session by ending at 12:30 pm at this meeting. Visit our web site for more information and to register for this free event!
If you will attend this event, please feel free to come and say “Hello”!
