Greetings from the President

Welcome to the web site for the Arizona Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (AASFAA). Please visit regularly to learn about training opportunities, connect with AASFAA members, and participate in the Arizona financial aid community.

Each fall AASFAA holds its annual conference. The 2014/15 Conference Committee would like to share the following invitation about this year’s event.

Plan to join us in Sedona for the fall 2014 AASFAA Conference on November 6th & 7th.

altYour Conference Committee is busy scheduling the speakers and the sessions….stay tuned for updated information and the agenda within the next few weeks.

We are also planning on several “riveting” breakout sessions throughout the day on Thursday, along with our special Keynote speaker, Dr. Brenda Combs. Dr. Combs has been listed in Who's Who Among America's Teachers and featured in Reader's Digest, and has appeared on CNN News and The Today Show. Upon receiving her master’s degree, she was personally congratulated by former First Lady Laura Bush for her accomplishments. She is also the founder of Finding My Shoes, a charitable organization that serves the homeless and underserved communities in Arizona. Dr. Brenda Combs is sure to inspire you with her journey from homeless to educator.

Our agenda will also include an entire D.C. Day with updates through the eyes of NASFAA, a Washington D.C. insider, and the U.S. Department of Education.
The conference will be held at the Poco Diablo resort in Sedona.
More information will be available soon.

The fall conference will feature not only inspirational and informational sessions, but the chance to network with your peers, enjoy the clear and crisp air in beautiful Sedona (no, we will not be cooped up in a meeting room all day!), and give back to the Arizona community through collecting donations at the conference for Finding My Shoes. More details on this charitable drive will follow with agenda and registration information.

The Conference Committee and I hope to see you in Sedona as we relax, renew, and rejuvenate!
