Welcome to the VASFAA Community! As your President for the 2017-18 year I am very excited and honored to be serving this association and its members during the celebration of its 50th Anniversary!
VASFAA, established in April 1968, has maintained its mission to promote the professional growth and collaboration of its members in order to serve fairly the needs of students, families, and institutions in matters related to financial and informational resources supporting student’s postsecondary education goals over the last 50 years. This mission will continue on.
This year’s theme is:
“Coming Together - Celebrating 50 Years of Serving Students, Families, and Institutions”
The VASFAA Executive Board, appointed Committee Chairs, and committee volunteers are already hard at work in preparation to meet the goals outlined during the transition retreat held in June 2017. These groups have been charged with increasing membership and participation within the association, developing improved communication, and promotion of professional growth and training through workshops, webinars, and the annual conference. I am very enthusiastic about what this year offers to help VASFAA “Come Together “
VASFAA is a dynamic organization with financial aid professionals from all sectors. This organization has a great deal to offer its members and each and every one of its members has a great deal to offer it in return. Whether you like to give back through volunteerism, have a desire to network with “like-minded” folks, share your knowledge of the industry conducting sessions, or as a participant in training opportunities, VASFAA has value! As Vince Lombardi said, “The achievements of an organization are the combined efforts of each individual.” The key to VASFAA’s success is its members and their participation. Please consider joining the VASFAA Team this year to help achieve our goals and come together to celebrate our 50th anniversary! Click here to Volunteer
I am excited to be working with such a dedicated and passionate group of financial aid professionals, celebrating 50 years of VASFAA’s success, and embarking on an exciting future ahead.
Thank you for your support!
VASFAA President 2017-18
