Region 5 - South Florida

Dear Region V,

Thank you for allowing me to serve as the Region V Representative for FASFAA for the 2017-2018 & 2018-2019 aid years!  

The purpose of FASFAA is to develop and maintain professional standards of financial aid administration, to promote cooperation and communication among its members, and to promote and endorse student financial aid programs that are consistent with good professional practice.

The programs and services that support the purpose of FASFAA are designed to:

·        Enhance the professional competency of financial aid administrators, high school guidance counselors, and others concerned with the support and administration of financial aid through regular publications, workshops, conferences, research and training materials.

  • Facilitate communication between educational institutions and sponsors of student financial aid funds through an exchange of ideas, information and experience.
  • Promote an awareness of financial aid to students, parents, the secondary and post-secondary education community, and to other groups that may be identified.


The 2017-2018 FASFAA Executive Board has already begun working to accomplish our training and advocacy goals for the year; however, we cannot do this without your support.  I encourage you to volunteer https://fasfaa.memberclicks.net/volunteer.  Whether you serve on a committee, promote and support our advocacy efforts, or simply provide your feedback, your participation is appreciated.  As one of the largest state associations in the country, with over 700 members, we have the ability to influence federal and state financial aid regulations.  We must continue to grow our active membership and encourage our members to be involved. 

 
In addition to several state-wide training events this year, we will offer regional fall and spring training workshops that will involve NASFAA U materials and the opportunity to earn NASFAA Credentials.  Please watch the listserv for updates and announcements about these upcoming events.

This will be an exciting and productive year for our Association.  If you have any questions, suggestions, or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I look forward to hearing from you! 


Sincerely,

Katie Conrad
Region V Representative
