    Access to Members Only section of web site
    A unique log in provides members access to presentations and resources from all meetings, as well as other useful information such as Gartner reports, contact information, and district surveys.

    Professional Development

    We offer a variety of professional development options for technology directors and their staffs, from monthly meetings to district site visits, vendor-sponsored Lunch & Learns and seminars. Members may purchase technology certification courses through New Horizons and at discounted fees.

    Benefit Packages
    Member districts have the opportunity to choose from a list of specially selected educational software and hardware packages. The purpose of these packages is for districts to pilot and assess new technologies before making a large scale investment. They are the property of the member district and not of any individual NASTECH representative.

    Cooperative Bids
    Districts can lower their costs by participating in the Computer Hardware/Software/Networking and Supplies Consolidated Bid developed by the Nassau BOCES Cooperative Bidding & Purchasing Service. This bid costs $1200 if purchased separately.
