The PhilaSUG Executive Committee would like to invite you to the Philadelphia, PA Area SAS Users Group Spring Meeting which will be held on Tuesday, June 8, 2010 at 1:00 PM, and will be hosted by ReSearch Pharmaceutical Services (RPS), Inc. at their Corporate Headquarters, 520 Virginia Drive, Fort Washington, PA 19034. A map, driving and parking directions are available on the PhilaSUG web site at http://www.PhilaSUG.org.
Registration will begin at 12:15 PM and the meeting will commence at 1 PM. Dues for the year are $30. There are no other fees for attending PhilaSUG meetings. We will accept cash, but a check is preferred. If you are a student and present a current matriculation card, or you’re an employee of our host, fees for this meeting will be waived. A tip – to breeze through registration – bring in the completed registration form found in the back of the online newsletter to the meeting, otherwise registration can still be simplified if you attach a business card to the check or cash, as there is less writing and it will be more legible. Please do not mail in your registration fee beforehand. Receipts will be available at registration time.
An RSVP is required. Please see the RSVP form on the web site.

12:15-1:00 Registration, Posters and light lunch (food & refreshments are provided courtesy of RPS)
