Happy 50th Anniversary EASFAA!
Please join me in celebrating the accomplishments that we have achieved as a profession over the past 50 years. From its inception, EASFAA was founded and led by visionary leaders who believed in the benefit of networking, professional development and advocacy. Although financial aid administration has evolved throughout the past decades, our primary focus on providing higher education access to students has never wavered.
The Executive Council of EASFAA gathered at our annual retreat in June, 2015 to begin planning for the events that will commemorate our 50th anniversary throughout the entire 2015-16 year. You will find a range of training and professional development opportunities, a new look to our website, re-energized leadership and mentoring activities, federal relations initiatives, all culminating with our annual conference in May 2016 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The key to our continued success as an organization is your involvement. What better time than this year to join an EASFAA committee or re-engage if you havenít been active in our association in recent years. Our strength is fueled by the talent and commitment of all our members, and we look forward to whatever contributions you have to offer. If you are interested in learning more about these opportunities, or are ready to become an active volunteer, please access the Volunteer Form.
The other EASFAA officers and myself are always open to your ideas, input and suggestions. You may email us via the contact information listed under the Leadership tab on this homepage. I look forward to visiting with many of you as I travel throughout the region during my year as EASFAA president, or at our gala celebration in Atlantic City in May. I am so very honored to lead this association this year along with Past-President Tony Erwin, President-Elect Wynette Zuppardi, Vice President Sam Veeder, Past-Treasurer Odette Franceskino, Treasurer Wayne Harewood, and Secretary Dawn Mosisa-Lowe.
