What we’re about

The Sacramento SQL Server User Group is a local chapter of the Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS). The mission of PASS is to empower data professionals who leverage Microsoft technologies to connect, share, and learn through networking, knowledge sharing, and peer-based learning. We meet the first Wednesday of each month (6PM to 8PM) to discuss anything SQL Server. Additionally, we host a SQLSaturday event every summer.

We are new to, but we are not a new group; we've been meeting since March, 2010! For more info on our history, check out

Monthly meetings usually feature a presentation, but a few times per year we just have an open forum that allows attendees to discuss real-world SQL Server related questions, issues and concerns which are addressed as a group.

We start each meeting with some time to network and get situated. Unless otherwise noted, the schedule for each meeting will be:

6:00 PM - 6:15 PM: Mingle/networking, get food & beverages, presentation setup <br>6:15 PM - 6:30 PM: Group announcements, agenda, introduce speaker <br>6:30 PM - 7:30 PM: Presentation <br>7:30 PM - 8:00 PM: Post-meeting discussions.
