How to join the SAS Global Forum 2017 group

Joining this event group is easy, free, and completely self-service.  You don't have to join the group in order to read the messages, but if you want to post or reply (and of course you want to post and reply!), then you'll need to become an official member.  Here's what you need to do.

 

These first two steps are for those who are new to SAS Support Communities.

 

1. Log in to SAS Support Communities with your SAS.com profile.  If you've registered for a SAS event, opened a SAS Tech Support ticket, downloaded a whitepaper --- you probably already have a profile.

 

2. Create a user name on the community.  The first time you visit communities.sas.com while logged in, you'll be asked to complete this step.  This is your alias that your peers will see on the site.  It does not need to be your real or full name, but if your goal is to network with your peers, it's a good idea to not be too coy.  We're all friends here!

 

While you're at it, why not round out your profile with some personal details that help us to get to know you?

 

After you've become a communities member:

3. Visit this group page and click Join Group.  It's that easy.  No approvals, no waiting.

 

Q: "Wait...do I need to be registered to attend SAS Global Forum 2017 in order to participate?"

A: Great question! No, you don't!  If you're just considering attending, you don't have to wait to join.  Maybe you want to connect with others to find out what their plans are, or how much they value the conference experience.  Even if you don't attend in person in 2017, you can join this group to connect virtually with the conference activities.

 

Having trouble connecting? Send us a note at communities@sas.com and we'll try to help.

Chris,
Thanks for the 411; I just joined the group. Now, when do I get my SAS Global Forum 2017 secret decoder ring and magnifying glass?
Best of luck in all your SAS endeavors!

I'll vouch for you @Reeza.  And who knows?  You might get more company in the Great White North when it's all done.
