Technical Publications

Once each year, NISA publishes the information presented at its Technical Conferences for the benefit of those who could not attend and for reference material for all of its members. With the cost of travel and busy schedules, there may be a chance that you may miss one of the conferences.

The data presented at the meetings will be recorded and presented to each member, affording everyone with all the material. For those in attendance at the meetings, the Technical Publication will serve as a recap of the presentations and for all, it will serve as a good reference as the years roll by.

Over the years, there have been additions to the Technical Publication including articles about the conference, field trips, past presentations and technical authors. Each publication will provide enjoyable reading for those who want to stay on top of what’s going on.

These Technical Publications are supported by member sponsors. In addition, NISA arranges two hospitality session during the two-evening Spring conference and again during the Fall conference. The hospitality sessions provide an opportunity for our members to relax, socialize, and network immediately following each of our highly informative technical presentation sessions.

To help fund our technical publication and our hospitality sessions, NISA depends on the generous and continued support of manufacturers, suppliers, and members.

Sponsorship of the technical publication and hospitality sessions is $300.

In appreciation, all sponsors are recognized at the conference hall and at the hospitality suite.
