Best Practices

NSAC is proud to introduce a new benefit program for members and visitors. In recent years NSAC has been providing an outstanding live annual conference wherein many dynamic presentations have been given, addressing a wide variety of topics. In addition NSAC has hosted dozens of Cooperative Learning Networks or CLN’s which are web-based live interactive training sessions. In reviewing our inventory of information it became obvious that we should create another benefit for members and we have.

The library of available Best Practices will continue to grow and will be added to and updated regularly, and we have developed them into an easy to access and easy to read series of learning modules.

If you have a topic you would like to submit for a Best Practice, or if you would like to suggest a change/update to an existing Best Practice, simply identify the topic, provide the suggested change and forward to info@nsacoop.org, or call (937) 222-6707.

We are confident you will enjoy and find value in this new offering.
