We hope that you saw your invitation, posted on this list on Jan. 14,
to attend the SAS-L RAL/BOF at SUGI 25. In case you might have missed
it, here again are the specifics:

When: Tuesday, April 11, 2000
Where: Indiana Convention Center Room 116
Time: 12:15 - 1:15
We certainly hope to see you there, and know that you will find it
both informative and entertaining. If you saw the invitation,
hopefully you noticed that one of the big events is the announcement
of the SAS Institute Consultant of the Year (SICY).
What you didn't see, however, was the announcement that the best
nomination for the SICY is going to win a **free** seat to the SAS
Institute class of their choice (up to 3 days in length)!
We know how busy you are, but won't you please take a minute to
nominate a SAS Institute technical support group staff person who has
provided you with exceptional help. Please go to this URL to cast
The person you nominate can be anyone in the SAS Institute Technical
Support group who has gone above and beyond the call of duty, and whom
you feel deserves recognition for that fact.
The SAS Institute Consultant of the Year (SICY) will be awarded at the
SUGI 25 SAS-L RAL. With our deepest appreciation, we will recognize
their outstanding contributions. They will receive a certificate, the
official SAS-L BOF t-shirt, and the accolades of SAS-Lers and the SI
In 1996, the members of SAS-L selected Donna Woodward, out of 16
nominees, for the award. Donna's nomination read, 'Not only is she
technically proficient, but she treats each user with courtesy,
patience, and respect. Her commitment to excellent service is
recognized and appreciated by the entire SAS community.'"
Here are the dates for nominations and votes:
February 1 -- NOMINATIONS due
February 4 -- REQUEST FOR VOTES (RFV)
March 1 -- VOTES due
Thanks so much for your consideration of this. We hope you will find
it an opportunity to recognize someone in the SAS Institute Technical
Support Group that has lived up to the SAS-L standard of helpfulness.
Sally Muller and Ray Pass (SAS-L RAL/BOF Planning Committee)
* Our thanks to Tom Henry of SAS Institute Training for making the
reward of a free SI class for the best SICY nomination possible.
