SAS Professionals

Creating relationships... and keeping SAS users In the Know


Here's how you can get involved.

Welcome to the new look

After consulting with existing SAS Professional users, we felt the time was right to make some changes to the layout of the network. The changes we have made are designed to make the site easier to use, and we have also taken this opportunity to retire some of the old functionality that was rarely used. We hope you enjoy the changes we have made and continue to join in the discussion on SAS Professionals.

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact Terry Salmon.
