The sasCommunity.org 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 sasCommunity.org. 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.
Space is limited, and spots will be filled on a first come first
served basis, so please reply to this email if you would like to
attend or if you have any questions. I will respond to you by March 16
to confirm your attendance.
We look forward to seeing you in Washington. Thank you for your time.
