Pathways Overview

The NASFAA Leadership and Legislative Conference & Expo provides four individual pathways, based on participant interest. Enrollment Management offers both a Fundamentals of Enrollment Management pathway and a Strategic Enrollment Management pathway. Association Management and New & Aspiring Aid Directors continue to be long-standing popular options.

Association Management Pathway

You are: A current or aspiring financial aid association leader at the state, regional, or national level.

You need to know: The skills and characteristics needed to lead effectively, while navigating the legal and financial issues that come with your role.

Volunteering for a professional association – at any level – is an exciting professional activity with many benefits for volunteers, their institutions, and the students they serve. Financial aid associations across the country depend on the talents and energy of volunteer leaders to carry out the association’s activities.

The New & Aspiring Aid Directors Pathway

You are: An up and coming leader in your financial aid office, or new to a leadership or director role.

You need to know: How to handle challenges you inherit, what your first year will entail, and how your role fits in on campus.

While there is often no “best way” to do anything as a director, this Pathway helps attendees recognize and avoid the mistakes and missteps others have made, learn from the experiences of colleagues, and hear first-hand how they have implemented best practices on their campuses.
