Be an Instructor

The deadline for submitting class proposals has passed. Thank you to everyone who submitted a proposal! View information about classes that will be offered.

Whether you’re an experienced trainer or a frequent presenter looking for a new challenge, please consider being a class instructor at the 2019 WUSS Educational Forum and Conference.  Teaching a class is a great way to share your unique blend of knowledge and experience with SAS users.  In addition, class instructors receive free conference registration and compensation for their time.


WUSS hosts pre- and post-conference classes on a wide range of topics for all levels of SAS users in a variety of industries.  Popular topics have included statistics and analytics, SQL, macros, DATA step programming, reporting and visualization, the Output Delivery System; branching out recently to topics such as data science, text mining, working with Python and R, artificial intelligence and more.  If you want some help deciding whether a particular topic is appropriate for WUSS, contact our Class Coordinator for assistance. Additionally, a link to frequently asked questions (and answers) is provided below.

The 2019 conference will be held September 4 – 6. Full-day pre-conference classes
(lasting 8 hours each) will be held on Tuesday, September 3rd. Half-day classes (lasting
4 hours each) will be held on the morning of Wednesday, September 4th and on the
afternoon of Friday, September 6th . 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.

Class proposals are due May 8, 2019. 

If you have any questions, please email our Class Coordinator.
