Message from TASFAA President:

Hi TASFAA Members! Happy New Year to you all! We are well into our 2022-2023 TASFAA year and are excited about the year! At the October 2022 conference, I discussed my goals for TASFAA this year which are listed below.

1)     Continue to strengthen the transparency of TASFAA’s financial operations

2)     Facilitate procedures are in place and on the TASFAA website for each committee to ensure a smooth transition from year to year.

3)     Continue to provide timely and relevant professional development and training opportunities for our members.

4)     To stay informed on upcoming changes related to FAFSA Simplification and provide information to our members.

5)     Continue to be a resource to educate legislators during the upcoming legislative session

As folks in the financial aid community, we serve such an important function in helping students reach their higher education goals. No matter what role you play in the financial aid office, we are all working together to help students. TASFAA is here to support its members and we hope you can take advantage of some of the training and professional development opportunities this year. If you have any feedback on additional ways TASFAA can support you, I would love to hear them ([email protected]).
