Welcome to the WASFAA website! I am honored and excited to serve as the 2017-2018 WASFAA President. WASFAA is an organization made up of dedicated, engaged individuals. I am proud to be a part of a passionate group who work hard to help students, foster relationships, and build the necessary skills to be better Financial Aid Administrators and leaders. Thank you to all of you who serve WASFAA in all kinds of ways: presenting or moderating conference sessions, joining WASFAA committees, volunteering at College Goal Wisconsin, teaching NASFAA credential sessions, advocating for students, participating in surveys and elections, or serving on the Executive Committee.

We have a busy year planned for WASFAA! Our Fall and Spring Conferences are scheduled for Nov 1-3 at the Stone Harbor Resort in Sturgeon Bay and April 11-13 at the Radisson in La Crosse. Conference Committees are already busy planning, and I encourage WASFAA members to challenge yourself to present an interest session. We love to hear what you are doing on your campuses! In addition, the Professional Development Committee is working on the NASFAA Fall Training as well as NASFAA Credentialing sessions for WASFAA members.
Looking for volunteer opportunities? Check out the Committee pages! There is High School Counselor Workshop organized by the College Access Resource Committee. The Reality Store is conducted by the Early Awareness Committee. Our Federal Issues and State Issues Committees provide opportunities to advocate for our students. Are you a technology guru? The Innovations Committee works hard to maintain our website. Want to get involved, but not sure how? The Membership Committee can help direct you!
Please feel free to reach out to Executive Committee Members if you have questions or concerns. We are here to serve the WASFAA membership and welcome your feedback!
