Subject: SAS-L Hall of Fame to be unveiled at SUGI!
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
The members of the SUGI 25 SAS-L BOF planning committee are especially
pleased to announce that this year's SAS-L Random Access Lunch (BOF) will
feature the announcement of the first-ever SAS-L Hall of Fame award! The
SAS-L Hall of Fame will provide special recognition for anyone who over the
years has been repeatedly selected by his or her peers as making the most
outstanding contributions to the SAS-L community.
So who, if anyone, will enter this exclusive society this year? You'll have
to come to this year's SAS-L RAL/BOF next Tuesday to find out! (How's that
for raising the suspense level!)
What: SUGI 25 SAS-L RAL (BOF)
When: Tuesday, April 11, 2000
Where: Indiana Convention Center Room 116
Time: 12:15 - 1:15
Naturally, the announcement of the Hall of Fame won't be the only highlight
of the program. Based on your nominations and voting, we will also make
several other awards -- the Most Valuable SAS-Ler (MVS), the SAS-L Rookie of
the Year (SASLROY), and the SAS Institute Consultant of the Year (SICY) --
recognizing those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty during the
past year to help out their fellow SAS-mates.
This year's featured speaker from SAS Institute will be Paul Kent, who's the
Director of Base SAS R&D at the Institute. Paul is always in much demand as
a speaker at SAS conferences and meetings (we lobbied hard to get him for
DCSUG a few years back). If you haven't seen him in action before, come and
find out why! Of course, if you have seen him before, you already know what
we're talking about, and we're sure you won't want to miss him.
This is far from an exhaustive list of what will be going on -- we plan to
cram as much fun and information as possible into our alloted 60 minutes!
Door prizes have always added some zing to our BOF sessions, and this year
will be no exception. Come out and find out more about the SAS-L, and those
who inhabit it -- we guarantee that it will be one of your more memorable
SUGI 25 experiences! See you Tuesday!
