Optional Webinar: NAST Annual Reporting Requirements


May 2017

Accredited institutional members of NAST are required to submit annual reports as outlined in the NAST Rules of Practice and Procedure (NAST Handbook 2017-18, Rules of Practice and Procedure, Part II, Article III).

Information regarding 2017-2018 reporting requirements specifically pertaining to the Accreditation Audit (NAST Handbook 2017-18, Rules of Practice and Procedure, Part II, Article III, Section 1.B.) and the Affirmation Statement (NAST Handbook 2017-18, Rules of Practice and Procedure, Part II, Article III, Section 1.C.) will be forwarded to the primary institutional representatives of accredited member institutions electronically on June 1, 2017. Institutional replies must be returned to the NAST National Office no later than July 1, 2017.

To assist representatives of member institutions assigned with the responsibility to review and complete these required submissions, NAST will offer an informative webinar. Should you wish to participate in the webinar, please note the information offered below. Please note that preregistration is required.

Date and Time

The webinar will be held Wednesday, June 7, 2017 from 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. (EDT).

Focus

Following a brief overview of NAST annual reporting requirements, staff will offer step-by-step instructions pertaining to both the Accreditation Audit and Affirmation Statement.
