The Executive Leadership Collective (ELC) is an exclusive new professional development opportunity for financial aid leaders. The ELC will provide participants with the opportunity to discuss pressing issues in a closed-door setting, and interact with other noteworthy individuals from Congress, federal agencies, and the higher education community at large. By creating this group, NASFAA seeks to establish a community of financial aid leaders who will commit to championing the profession and leading at the intersection of ethics, institutional stability, and advocacy for student aid policy.
With each cohort of the ELC, this community of leaders will grow and there will be continued opportunities for participation and collaboration. Participation in the 2023-24 cohort includes:
The ELC, through your participation and engagement will come together to collaborate, share knowledge, and drive strategy. Through the collective, executives can gain access to a diverse range of perspectives, experiences, and expertise. This will serve to identify new opportunities, navigate challenges, and develop more effective leadership strategies. Additionally, the collective will serve as a valuable networking opportunity, allowing executives to build relationships with their principals in higher education.
The $2,500 registration fee for the 2023-24 Executive Leadership Collective includes registration fees for both the 2024 NASFAA Leadership & Legislative Conference & Expo ($695 member price) and the 2024 NASFAA National Conference ($649 member price). Participant travel costs are not included.
NASFAA extends special thanks to our Executive Leadership Task Force for their hard work and dedication to this inaugural program year.
Registration for the 2024-25 Executive Leadership Collective will open in the spring of 2024.
