One highlight of the annual WUSS conference is the opportunity to attend training classes taught by industry experts, and we are proud to be able to continue that tradition for 2023.
Whether you are an experienced trainer or a frequent presenter looking for a new challenge, please consider being a class instructor at the 2023 WUSS Educational Forum and Conference. Teaching a class is a fantastic way to share your unique blend of knowledge and experience with other SAS users. In addition, class instructors receive free conference registration and compensation for their time.
The WUSS 2023 conference will be held October 31 – November 2. Full-day pre-conference classes (lasting 8 hours each) will be conducted on Monday, October 30th. Half-day classes (lasting 4 hours each) will be held on the morning of Tuesday, October 31st and on the afternoon of Thursday, November 2nd. Most of these classes are offered in a lecture-style format, but there is room for a limited number of hands-on half-day classes.
Instructors receive 50% of the registration rate per registered student. For a full-day course, the instructor will receive $200 per registered student, and for a half-day course, instructors will receive $100 per registered student. For students who register during regular or late registration, the instructor will be paid $125/student for Half-day classes or $250 for Full-day classes. Note: WUSS will guarantee a minimum payment of five students per class at the early registration rate. Due to the five-student minimum guarantee, instructors will not have the option to cancel a class due to low attendance.
