SESUG 2020 Conference COVID-19 Update

The SESUG Executive Committee has been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic closely. After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person conference in Savannah, GA. While we are sad to miss out on the conference, health and well-being of our attendees is our top priority. We did not feel that we could hold this event while ensuring your safety.

SESUG 2020 Free Virtual Events

While we were unable to gather together in person this year, the committee has been busy planning some virtual events to help everyone stay connected and keep their SAS skills sharp! Please join us for our virtual conference week October 26-30. These virtual events are free and will include the following: a Virtual Scavenger Hunt, Birds of Feather (BOF) Sessions, Code Doctor Sessions and a Career Panel.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out the 2020 Conference Co-Chairs, Lesa Caves ( and Richann Watson (, or anyone on the SESUG Executive Committee.
