This Forum Outreach Site is intended to provide resources to assist members when making presentations and conducting other outreach activities.

Forum Publications Overview –PowerPoint™ Presentation

The Forum Publications PowerPoint Presentation Pdf File (1.3 MB) can be used to share an overview of the Forum and its members, activities, and recent publications. This PowerPoint™ is an excellent vehicle to use when making a formal presentation at a local or state conference. It is useful to remember that the work of the Forum is very broad. There are Forum publications that would be of interest to administrators, technologists, and board members, as well staff directly involved in data collection, maintenance, and reporting. As such, this Forum Publications PowerPoint™ is designed so that each presentation can be tailored to the needs of the intended audience. After the introductory slides that describe Forum membership, organization, and activities, the file contains an individual slide for each recent Forum publication. A presenter may choose to select only a subset of these publication pages based on the purpose of the presentation and interests of the audience.
