Subject: 2012 FSA Fall Conference Information
FSA's Fall Conference will be held in Orlando, FL at The Peabody Orlando from November 27 to November 30, 2012. To date, there are over 4,000 financial aid professionals registered for the conference.
This year, we are offering approximately 45 breakout training sessions over the course of four days on a range of topics including federal student loan regulations, processing, reconciliation, and system(s) usage, as well as data security, program integrity, cohort default rates and more. Thanks to feedback from our attendees, we are trying a new approach to the conference schedule in 2012. Session start times will be staggered and there will be no designated lunch period or break times. We are leaving it up to you to schedule your day. Therefore, please review the agenda carefully and be sure to always have a second session choice.
We have just posted the interest sessions and a tentative agenda to our website at http://fsaconferences.ed.gov/program12.html. In the coming weeks, we plan to post the individual session presentations.
On behalf of the Conference Services Team, we look forward to seeing you in Orlando, FL!
