Hello TASFAA Friends and Colleagues:

On behalf of the 2019-2020 TASFAA Board of Directors, I welcome you to the TASFAA website!  We hope you find the site helpful and easy to navigate. 

In keeping with our mission and core values, the TASFAA leadership is planning what we hope will be a productive year providing professional development opportunities for our diverse membership and interested stakeholders.  High school counselor workshops are being offered in conjunction with participating higher education institutions around the state.  Regional training will be offered in five areas of the state during the months of March and April and will provide updates from our state and federal partners as well as an educational opportunity to receive NASFAA credentialing.  In late April, our New Aid Officers Workshop will provide an opportunity for new aid officers to learn the basics of our profession.  The year will culminate with the annual conference in October providing yet another opportunity for learning, professional development, and networking with friends and colleagues.

TASFAA is a strong and diverse volunteer organization.  I am honored to serve as president during the 2019/20 year and look forward to working with the Board members and committee chairs to support our membership and promote student access to higher education.

Lyn W. Kinyon

2019-2020 TASFAA President
