We are excited to report that the "24 Hours of SABSA" event in January was a huge success, with practitioners meeting up in 14 cities around the world across 8 countries! Special thanks to those who stepped up to coordinate those events in their local regions!

SABSA in May is a new initiative that we hope will continue the momentum. Instead of meeting on the same day (Like for 24 Hrs of SABSA) meetups will be spread throughout the month of May. We hope this will make it easier for more people to participate and still maintain a spirit of community. Please see below for the confirmed locations and follow the links to contact the organizer for your region. If you do not see your region listed, why not step up and coordinate one?

What is SABSA World?

SABSA World is the result of an initiative of the SABSA Institute that is meant to build local communities of SABSA practitioners, while at the same time reinforcing our global connection. This initiative is volunteer led, and relies on members of the community to step up and participate in a local meeting, or if none exists, to help coordinate one.  Events can be formal or informal depending on local interest, although they should promote the "COSAC" spirit. Some groups may just meet for an informal happy hour, while others may wish to coordinate discussion topics or presentations. 

Purpose:

Assist local SABSA practitioners with a purpose to meet in order to:

* Facilitate networking with local SABSA Practitioners and grow local chapters.

* Learn and share practical information about applying SABSA.

* Provide an outlet for senior and junior certified SABSA members to test and grow ideas.

* Identify regional specific ideas or issues to present at COSAC/SABSA World Congress in Ireland.

Format:

The meetings will have a format that will encourage group discussion, facilitate debate, and foster new ideas. They can range from a group of people in a local conference room, to a small gathering in a local pub, the goal is just to have something. Since the discussion will be led and driven by the attendees, any topics are fair game, but some examples include; getting executive buy-in for architecture projects, demonstrating how to use the SABSA models in complex environments, sharing ideas for adapting the models into operational practices, and exploring what tools are proving the most effective for integrating SABSA. Each region will be hosted by a local SABSA practitioner who will do their best to provide a workshop in the spirit of COSAC that will benefit all who attend.
