The NASFAA Leadership & Legislative Conference & Expo provides four pathways to choose from so registrants can tailor their experience to best support their professional goals. In 2022, we're also pleased to introduce a fifth training option exclusively for those who hold the FAAC® designation.
Ideal for anyone interested in assuming a leadership position at the state, regional, or national level, this track will cover legal duties and best practices for successfully managing and leading a financial aid association. 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. This pathway will have new programming for the 2022 conference.
With curriculum geared toward practicing compliance officers and financial aid directors, this track will feature sessions that focus on compliance management strategies, administrative capability, tactical methodology, and collaboration beyond the financial aid office to achieve campus-wide compliance with all aspects of Title IV administration. This pathway will have new programming for the 2022 conference.
Designed for practicing enrollment managers, sessions in this track will focus on enrollment management strategies using fiscal management and ethics, tactical methodology, and collaboration beyond the financial aid office to achieve specific enrollment goals. This pathway will have new programming for the 2022 conference.
Developed for practicing financial aid directors, this track will help attendees focus on succession planning strategies, including staff development, identifying leadership/management potential, equity and inclusivity in the managerial pipeline, and collaboration beyond the financial aid office to provide opportunity for professional growth.
Note: participants in this pathway will receive a complimentary copy of NASFAA's "You’re the Director: A Guide to Leadership in Student Financial Aid" (third edition)
Designed exclusively for those who currently hold the FAAC® designation, this inaugural event brings FAACs together to network and explore important issues facing the financial aid community. Programming will include Title IV administrative capability training, skills-development presentations, and community-building discussions, as well as thought-provoking sessions designed to help envision the future of the financial aid profession.
