Join us for the annual SAS-supported meeting of the Gateway Area SAS Users on June 8.
There will be a host of great speakers lined up from several local Saint Louis based companies and a surprise guest Puzzler. Come prepared with your SAS questions and challenges for a “Random Access” problem solving session. This will be a great way to learn more about SAS and meet and reconnect with colleagues in the St Louis area.
Melodie Rush from SAS will be presenting:
