Puget Sound SAS Users Group (PugSUG)
PugSUG was created to help Puget Sound area SAS users learn more about SAS and network with other SAS users. We are a resource for the SAS community all along the Puget Sound, from Bellingham to Olympia. We have meetings every spring and fall and social events every 3-4 months. Any and every SAS user is welcome to attend PugSUG meetings. Come join us! For more information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep track of all PugSUG events by regularly checking this website (accessible from pugsug.org) or adding our events to your Google Calendar:
No more general meetings until early 2012. We're taking the fall off to avoid conflict with the larger Pacific Northwest SAS Users Group Conference on September 19. Visit this site this fall for more information!
