Hello everyone...

Below is an email I received today from SAS Institute's Worldwide Marketing Research Manager inviting me to attend a "focus group session" about during the upcoming SGF conference. According to this email, the focus groups will be "facilitated by SAS Market Research." The email also advises that "SAS will provide participants" with a gift in return for their participation in the focus group.

I thought others on SAS-L might find the content of this email of interest, so I am posting it here without further comment or characterization.

Dear Andrew,

The Advisory Board is sponsoring two focus groups at SAS Global Forum this month with the goal of soliciting feedback from users to improve the content and usage of You have been identified by the Advisory Board as a key contributor to the site and we’d like to invite you to participate in the focus group. The groups will be facilitated by SAS Market Research.

We will be asking for your input on site improvements, including “Tip of the Day”, site design and usability, and ways to increase overall usage of the site. Feedback from the focus groups will be summarized and presented to the Advisory Board to be used in setting direction for the site.

The first focus group will be held on Tuesday March 24, 2009 at 8:00 AM in Chesapeake 3 at the Gaylord National Resort. It will last 60 minutes. A continental breakfast will be served beginning at 7:45 AM. In exchange for your participation, SAS will provide participants with a Portable 3.5" USB Digital Photo Frame.
