I'll second this comment. I started getting a lot more out of the user group experience when I became more involved in volunteering and presenting. It has really enhanced the networking benefits of SAS Global Forum as well as regional and local user group meetings. I've made more and better connections as a result of getting involved more deeply.
There are still a few openings for room coordinators. Please consider helping out, especially if you already plan to spend a good chunk of a half-day session in a single room or in a Hands-On Workshop. You'll earn the undying gratitude of the Volunteer and Lead Room Coordinators, and get to see some interesting presentations that you would have been in anyway! No prior experience is necessary- we'll provide on-the-job training.
