PhilaSUG (Philadelphia Area SAS Users Group - <>) is a non-profit professional organization whose primary purpose is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, increased knowledge of SAS® software, and professional advancement. Through the generous support of the SAS Institute [1], PhilaSUG members enjoy once a year a speaker from SAS Institute, mailing of our newsletter and four books for door prizes. Partnering with national and regional groups able us to bring speakers from outside the Philadelphia area to speak on a variety of topics. In addition, speakers from our own area contribute their expertise, so PhilaSUG meetings always offer a stimulating mix of ideas.


PhilaSUG (Philadelphia Area SAS Users Group) sponsors three meetings per year where papers, posters, and live demonstrations are presented to the SAS user community. Membership is open to anyone who is involved in the use of SAS software and who pays nominal dues to cover the operating costs of a non-profit organization. An executive committee made up of volunteers who are members of PhilaSUG meets approximately six times a year to select speakers, locate meeting sites, and make general policy decisions for the group. Speakers are either recruited by the executive committee or self-motivated individuals can submit abstracts for consideration. Criteria for paper selection reflect current interests among the PhilaSUG membership. Overall, PhilaSUG exists to increase the SAS skills of its members.
