Once each year, NISA publishes the information presented at its Technical Seminars 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 technical meetings.

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 Reference Manual 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 Reference Manual including articles about the seminar, 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.

At the end of each presentation there is an opportunity for the audience to ask questions of the presenter. Over the years, we have seen good information available only for those at the meetings. 

These Reference Manuals are supported by membership dues as well as the help from our sponsors. It's worth adding a note about the sponsors of this publication, because without them, it couldn't go on. Being a sponsor of the Technical reference Manual continues a program that brings NISA home to each member and we are proud of those who have gone this extra step. All are welcome to join the ranks and sponsor the publications. Yearly, we offer this to each of our members and their respective Companies for one hundred dollars per publication.
