Volunteer at MWSUG 2019

MWSUG is an all-volunteer organization and we rely heavily on volunteers like you to make the conference a success. Volunteering is a great way to network and become more active in the community of SAS users.

We are looking for volunteers to help coordinate sessions and stuff bags for attendees (see list of duties and shifts below). You can sign up to volunteer using our Volunteer Sign-Up System or by contacting the volunteer coordinators at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . You can download instructions for signing up using the online system (PDF).

You are welcome to volunteer for more than one shift, but keep in mind that volunteers are expected to honor their commitment by showing up for each shift on time and staying for the duration. If your plans change after you sign up, please contact the volunteer coordinators as soon as possible at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so that your shift(s) can be reassigned.

Unfortunately, we cannot offer a registration discount for volunteers. However, volunteers will be acknowledged for their service.
