Conference Highlights
Sessions will begin on Thursday morning and conclude at noon on Friday. We will hold our annual awards banquet on Thursday evening. In addition to hour-long breakout sessions, we will also be offering thirty-minute mini-sessions and topical discussions. We know you’ll find something to meet your training needs!

We will be welcoming several guest speakers during the conference:

  • David Bartlett, Training Officer, Federal Student Aid
  • Stephen Payne, Assistant Director of Federal Relations, NASFAA
  • Ken Kocer, President, RMASFAA
  • Diane Lindeman, Director of Student Financial Assistance, KBOR

On Thursday, we’ll be offering the chance to earn your NASFAA U Credential in Cash Management. This training will span two breakout sessions. We have space for up to 40 registrants! At the conclusion of the conference, you’ll be able to test for your NASFAA U Credential at no cost.

On Wednesday evening before the conference, we’ll be hosting a movie night in the hotel with popcorn and drinks. Thursday night after the banquet will be a “paint your own masterpiece” event, which will be limited to 50 participants. Please let us know on your registration form if you’d like to join us for these!
