“I felt really welcome and was encouraged at every turn to participate and ask questions and join in” - SAS programmer for 5 years and 1st year SESUG attendee.

"I enjoyed the Norfolk/Portsmouth area so much during my visit to attend SESUG 98, that I returned to the area for a four-day vacation. There is a lot to see in the area, including a tour of the Navy base, Nauticus--a museum devoted to the sea and ships, and hot nightlife in the bars and clubs along the riverfront. I had a great time and am looking forward to my next trip to the Norfolk/Portsmouth area for SESUG 2005." - Michael Raithel, longtime SAS user/user group participant and "Books By Users" author

“I learned a lot! I have picked up SAS on the job - No formal training. There were questions I didn’t know to ask and I didn’t know SAS could do. This day and a half probably has been the most worthwhile use of my time recently. My boss probably thinks I’m just getting out of the office but he’s getting a good return on his investment”. - SAS programmer for 2.5 years and 1st year SESUG attendee.
