AASFAA Events (Free for members!): 

Future-Proofing Financial Aid: How to Transition to a 100% Virtual Office
Join us for a conversation with CampusLogic & several of your peers as we discuss how institutions can shift to a virtual FinAid office through the use of technology. We’ll explore how COVID-19 has forced institutions to adapt to a new “virtual” normal, and unpack ways in which your peers have stayed ahead of the pandemic disruption by using technology without sacrificing a personalized student experience. Walk away with an action plan for how you can begin to build a case internally to secure the funding for essential Financial Aid technology.
