Sharing Best Practices

OBIAA recognizes the power of networking, the strength in numbers and the value of sharing common concerns and finding resolutions specific to our individual communities.  Our members share Best Practices through a Member Needs Assistance E-Blast.  Members request a question to be sent out and the responses are posted in a Blog that members can access and/or print off reports.  Samples templates and documents can also be uploaded through this system.
