Dear TASFAA Friends & Colleagues,
I am truly honored to serve as your TASFAA President in 2018-2019, I am looking forward to the year ahead!
The 2018-19 TASFAA Board will focused on continuing to advance the three-year strategic plan that was member-developed to help guide the Association. TASFAA’s Strategic Goals are as follows, lead and facilitate the development of informed policies related to effective student financial aid programs and the improvement of student access and success at institutions of higher education, develop the professional skills and expertise of student financial aid professionals in the State of Texas and ensure that finances are managed for the long-term fiscal health of the Association while also using funds to develop initiatives that will better meet the needs of the Association’s members. The TASFAA Board and I will work on objectives that support the strategic plan in the coming year.
The objectives for the coming year encompass informing membership of public policy, TASFAA as the go to body for topics related to student aid in Texas, increasing NASFAA Credentialing to our members, enhancing our Regional Training, ensuring TASFAA is financially sound for the future and continue to seek member input to lead TASFAA for the future.
I would like to personally invite you, members of TASFAA to get involved and volunteer. Volunteer to give not to get, you will grow professionally and personally. Challenge yourself to meet new people through networking and to get out of your comfort zone or learn a new skill. TASFAA needs you!
I am very grateful for the TASFAA members who are volunteering their time and talents this coming year as committee chairs, co-chairs, vice chairs and committee members. I personally want to thank all of these individuals for sharing their time, talent and energy to support TASFAA, and the financial aid profession.
I look forward to seeing many of you in Fabulous Ft. Worth, Texas October 9-11, 2019 for our annual conference and throughout this year at TASFAA events.
Thank you again TASFAA members for supporting me as your President, It is a privilege to serve in this capacity, I will serve you to the best of my abilities. TASFAA has given me the opportunity to serve others, share my time, skills, and grow personally and professionally. I have made lasting friendships and most of all served my profession and state.
