Getting Involved with HASUG
HASUG Recruitment Policy
HASUG's primary mission is to provide a forum for SAS professionals to meet and share experiences. HASUG recognizes that searching for new employment opportunities is a normal activity when professionals meet. Since we depend on our respective employers to support HASUG by providing time for members to attend, prepare presentations, and provide meeting facilities, we do not wish to jeopardize those relationships which we have nurtured.
Therefore, when attending any of our quarterly meetings, we request that all parties engaged in recruiting activities be professional and discreet and suggest that such activities be carried on outside and after our meetings. Those seeking or offering positions may display materials at a location designated by HASUG at each quarterly meeting. The materials may include resumes, job openings, contract opportunities, business cards, etc. None of the materials may include salary information. All such materials left after the meeting will be discarded. Violators of this policy may be asked to leave the meeting.
HASUG Sponsorship Policy
All parties are encouraged and welcome to attend our quarterly HASUG meetings which are scheduled during the months of February, May, August and November each year. Usually these meetings are scheduled on the second or third Thursday of the month from 9:00 A.M. until noon at various locations throughout Connecticut. Past locations have included Hartford, Meriden, Middletown, Norwalk, Glastonbury, Ridgefield, Stamford, New London, and New Haven. We are always looking for new hosts within the state of Connecticut. If you feel your organization can host a meeting of up to 70 people, please contact a member of the steering committee.
