SouthEast SAS ® Users Group 
 User Group Support

User Group Support


Program Goals:

  • Speaker sharing is one of the many ways SESUG supports local and in-house SAS user groups in the SouthEast region. When available, SAS will also provide a speaker to the NorthEast region
  • SESUG provides SAS user groups a yearly presentation selected from our list of topics and delivered virtually by our SESUG EC featured speakers.
  • • SESUG speakers in the local area are also available for in-person presentations. SAS User Groups can also choose to fund an out of the area presenter for an in-person presentation.

Program Specifics:
  • Local and in-house SAS user groups in the SESUG region (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Washington DC, Puerto Rico) are eligible to participate..
  • For organizations with locations in multiple regions, SESUG also supports entities with a presence (SAS users) in this region.
  • User groups in the former NESUG region are also eligible to apply.
  • Sponsorship is limited to one virtual speaker each calendar year. Selected speakers can be expected to provide more than one presentation at a single user group meeting if requested.
  • SESUG fulfills local and in-house SAS user group requests for speakers based upon speaker availability.
  • In person speakers are available if in the local area or at the expense of the SAS User Group.
  • In order to accommodate multiple user group requests for a speaker, SESUG may request use of an alternate speaker.
