Welcome to the Mississippi Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (MASFAA) website.
Embarking upon our 51st year, we continue to strengthen a strong legacy of 50 years of superior leadership which has made MASFAA the association it is today!
Although, our profession has changed greatly over the past 50 years, the things that havenít changed are:
MASFAA will remain dedicated to looking for new ways to increase membership, encourage volunteerism, increase advocacy opportunities, strengthen our relationship with our legislators in Jackson and Washington, DC, and provide more training opportunities for our members. As our vision statement says, MASFAA has a profound impact on the lives of people who desire to achieve a higher education but believe it is impossible due to financial constraints. This is why we are all in the student financial aid profession.
Iím very excited about the training events that we will host this year! Amongst those will be our awesome New Aid Officers Boot Camp and Fall Training. Fall Training will be held at Holmes Community College in Ridgeland, MS on October 17, 2017, with our Favorite Federal Trainer Dave Bartnicki and our own Jennifer Rogers delivering updates on State Financial Aid. More info will be coming soon as we finalize plans for the New Aid Offices Boot Camp.
Also, donít forget to SAVE THE DATE for the 2018 Annual MASFAA Conference which will be held at the beautiful Pearl River Resort, June 13-15, 2018. Dr. Gail Muse-Beggs is serving as our Conference Chair this year. Gail and the Conference Committee are already hard at work planning a wonderful family fun event full of training and networking opportunities!
Your 2017-2018 MASFAA Executive board is very ecstatic about all the wonderful things this year will bring! I look forward to working with all of you next year as we celebrate our 51st year of assisting students and families in the great state of Mississippi! Please feel free to contact me with any questions, suggestions, and feedback on how we can work better to serve YOU!
