If your goal is to become a financial aid director, we invite you to participate in a professional development opportunity designed especially for you, Aspiring Director Group Coaching!*
"I gained a wealth of knowledge during the 6-week session and really enjoyed hearing from the experts about compliance, how to write policies and procedures and also understanding what a Director does, and how I can leverage the knowledge I currently have to move on to the next step in my career as a Director of Financial Aid."
- Jessica Lopez, Associate Director, Pomona College
"Through Aspiring Director Group Coaching with Blue Icon Advisors, I learned more about implementing effective policies and procedures and communicating effectively among campus leaders. Within two years of completing the group coaching, I was promoted twice, ultimately to my current position as director. In my role, I serve on the College's budget committee, incorporating financial aid analysis into enrollment management decisions."
-Eric Johnson, Director of Financial Aid, Goldey-Beacom College

Weekly online meetings take place each Friday, 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. ET for six weeks.
Weekly meetings are recorded for those who develop unexpected conflicts during the 6-week period. However, live virtual attendance is needed each week for dialog and conversation as we discuss the application of ideas and concepts.
Your group will focus on five topics during the 6-week experience.
Groups are small to allow for active participation. Please note: If the minimum number of individuals for a group is not met, the group may be canceled and a refund provided. Registrants for a canceled group will be given preference for the next scheduled group.
The price includes all six weeks!
To participate, you must have a working webcam on your computer, the ability to participate actively in group meetings via speakers and a microphone (either computer or phone), as well as access to Zoom video conferencing software (accounts are free at zoom.us) and Google classroom.

For each week, your time commitment will include two hours for the group meeting, plus 1-4 hours to complete the homework assignments. Assignments are required prior to each Friday group meeting.
