Committee Selection Process
We invite you to consider volunteering on the national level to help NASFAA address the issues that affect you, your colleagues, and the students you serve.
- The application period is generally February - April each year, for appointment beginning the following July.
- Current appointees seeking reappointment and those seeking new appointments apply for consideration by completing the Volunteer Form, and submitting all accompanying information. The application asks for a summary of past key professional activities and the level at which they were performed.
- We want to use the experience our members have gained through committee and leadership service at the state and regional association levels. Your prior activities in the service of your state/region, as well as other professional activities, will be taken into consideration.
- To be eligible for selection, you must be from a member institution. In some cases, associate members and non-members are permitted to serve on committees, at the approval of the Board.
- There are usually more volunteers than there are positions available, so it is not possible for everyone to receive an assignment. If you have volunteered in the past and have not been selected, please don't hesitate to volunteer again. Historical information is reviewed to assure that qualified individuals are not being passed over year after year. Every effort will be made to find an appropriate assignment for you.
- We try to appoint as many new volunteers as possible to NASFAA committees. However, some individuals will be reappointed to current positions in order to ensure continuity and maintain on-going activities.
- An individual's participation is generally limited to one committee to ensure greater membership participation.
- Appointments are made on an annual basis, but this does not preclude reappointment to the same or a different committee.
- The selection process is sensitive to the goal of broad representation with respect to ethnic origin, sex, region, and type and control of institution.
