I just did something like this for my current project. I created a class with a shared (static) dictionary which contains the dropdown lists. There is also a shared method which is passed the name of the desired list. The method checks the dictionary first and then queries the database if necessary. It's really just a simple data caching class. Not sure if this is considered the "proper" way to do things (I'll leave that to the programming gurus out there) but it's easy to code and it reduces the number of database calls..

Hope this helps,

Joe DiNatale
