NDUS Meetings and Other Non-Credit Events
All meeting events that involve NDUS organizations and/or participants will be classified as an NDUS Meeting. For meetings, there are three general levels of technical support as defined below. The NDUS Site Coordinators reserve the right to determine the level of service required based on the participants, the equipment needs, and the presentation requirements.

Levels of Technical Support
