October Message from the President

It’s hard to believe that fall is already upon us! In July the AASFAA Fall conference seemed to be an eternity away, and now it is just a few weeks away. I hope many of you will be joining us in Sedona as we refresh, renew, and rejuvenate.


want to thank everyone who applied for a scholarship to attend the fall conference, and to congratulate the winners.

They are:

Kelly O’Brien, Yavapai College
Mary Armstrong, University of Arizona
Courtney Rose, Arizona Christian University
Jackie Lange, Northern Arizona University


Stay tuned for another scholarship opportunity in spring 2015 when we will award a scholarship to attend the WASFAA Summer Institute!

I want to take a moment to thank you all for bearing with all of the changes in the AASFAA web site.

Change is always eventful, and our Membership and Conference Committees have done a masterful job navigating the membership and conference registrations on the new site. I am especially grateful to Howard Fischer and Dianne Fulmer of the Membership Committee, and Shirley Vaden and Carmen Dominguez of the Conference Committee, for their help to any of you who experienced issues with registration for membership or conference. I also want to recognize Mary Frances Causey, AASFAA Treasurer, for handling our registrations and payments masterfully as well.

And last but definitely not least, the biggest “shout out” is for Rodney Landrum, AASFAA Information and Technology Chair, who deserves the biggest thanks of all for sharing his vision for a new and improved web site through the inevitably tough transition period from old to new. Rodney, you are a true MVP of our association!

 I hope to see you all next month!
