I've been tapped to present on NIMAS for a course I am taking this semester [SED SE744: Special Education Administration]. Fortunately, I have a secret weapon in my knowledge arsenal - the NIMAS listservs at CAST <http://lists.cast.org/mailman/listinfo> . Chuck Hitchcock [Chief Officer, Policy and TechnologyDirector, NIMAS Technical Assistance Center] is a regular contributor to the General Interest Group list and recently posted a link to the NIMAS at CAST: NIMAS Presentations <http://nimas.cast.org/center/presentations/index.html> page. This page includes all upcoming presentations by the CAST crew and some of the current handouts they use.

The Workflow Graphic depicting NIMAS/NIMAC implementation and SEA (State Education Agency) Implementation Scenarios were distributed through the listservs before being posted here. The NIMAS/NIMAC glossary is a must read -- don't be the only AMP left out of all the coolest conversations about SGML and Dublin Core at CSUN because you haven't brushed up on your acronyms. For those needing such information, CAST is now listing the primary contacts for NIMAS/NIMAC <http://nimas.cast.org/about/resources/nimas_nimac_contacts.html> in each state.

The NIMAC site <http://www.nimac.us/> itself has much good information, including PowerPoint presentations (with audio overlay) as well as archived on-line presentations. However, one of the best presentations on NIMAS/NIMAC available on-line is the audio and transcript of NIMAS in IDEA, What You Need To Know Now <http://www.ncdae.org/webcasts/nimas.cfm> webcast available through the National Center on Disability and Access to Education <http://www.ncdae.org/> .
