sheets are created by staff and are a compilation of information previously developed by NASPO
via research briefs, white papers, surveys, the Practical Guide and
other publications, simply honed down into one-page documents for your
convenience. You might utilize them for a variety of purposes,
including as a quick reference tool or as an outline for a speaking
engagement or presentation.
