Taryn AndersonHello TASFAA friends! 

There is so much going on in TASFAA right now! We are excited to be offering training again and making sure that our membership is up to date on all things financial aid. 

We have 90 new financial aid professionals from across the state registered for the New Aid Officers Virtual Workshop.  If you missed an opportunity to participate keep an eye out for additional training for new aid officers in October.

Regional Training was a huge success with more than 500 TASFAA members registering to participate in Zoom training about Professional Judgement, Federal updates, and State updates.  Thank you to the Regional Training Committee for sharing your knowledge.

The Legislative Issues Committee has been tracking all the happenings at the federal and state level.  While the state activity around higher ed is quiet right now, things at the federal level seem to be changing every week.  We will continue sending updates via email as they happen, as well as posting links on the Legislative Issues page.

We are looking for future TASFAA leaders.  Please consider nominating someone for President Elect or Board Member-at-large so you can keep our organization strong.  Nomination Form is available here.

Save the date for our Fall Training Conference at the Sheraton Austin Georgetown Hotel and Conference Center for our Conference October 6-8, 2021. I look forward to seeing you there!


2020-21 TASFAA President
