Some additional thoughts and replies

Nat: If you are looking for a new job, there usually will be a table with notebooks where people can leave resumes and where those who are looking to hire can post openings.

Yes. And browse around the "solutions center" or "meeting area" or whatever they call it

Nat: These meetings are a great place to meet people. Talk to as many people as you can.

100% agree! You can READ the papers; you can ask for slides of the presentations. Talking and meeting people is the best part of these meetings. Hang out in the hotel lobby.

More: Also, talk to SAS people - they are friendly! (They keep the unfriendly people home in Cary :-)).

If you go to a talk you really like, try to talk to the speaker afterward - nearly all speakers will be happy to hear that you liked a talk, and they may have additional pointers or whatnot.

Go to "unique things" like panel discussions and "meet SAS people" meetings. You can't do this at home.

Peter Who has been to about a dozen NESUGs and will be at SESUG this year.
