Kristi Jovell, 2017-2018 EASFAA PresidentGreetings, colleagues! I am honored to serve as your president for 2017-2018 and look forward to a busy year ahead for EASFAA and our profession. I am focused on three overarching goals: enhance training and professional development, expand volunteer opportunities, and increase collaboration with our states and members.

EASFAA Leads, our new leadership and professional development series, will round out trainings along with the EASFAA Webinar Series – now dubbed Tuesdays@2, NASFAA Credentialed Trainings offered in-person throughout the region, and the Annual Training Topic (SAR Codes this year). The EASFAA Conference will be May 6-9, 2018 at The Sagamore Resort on Lake George, NY.

The EASFAA committees are hard at work and I encourage you to volunteer. Help your colleagues while also expanding your professional network and advancing your career. Questions on volunteering? Reach out to me at or submit a volunteer form. There are roles with varying time commitments – joining a committee, presenting a training, serving as a moderator for a session or working the registration table at the conference.

I look forward to seeing many of you as I travel to state conferences to deliver the EASFAA Update, share what’s new and learn how EASFAA can continue to support your work and career.

Please take a moment to review the list of this year’s Council and committee members. These colleagues are giving their time and energy to support EASFAA, our profession and the students we serve. I am very grateful to work with each of them.

I welcome your feedback and your involvement.

With all best wishes,
Kristi Jovell
EASFAA President
