It's not too late to register for NASFAA's 2023 Leadership & Legislative Conference & Expo next month — and 20 more seats were just added to the Association Leadership pathway. For many in the financial aid profession, volunteering for your association at the state, regional, or national level is a rewarding opportunity to give back to the profession and help shape the best policies for the students you serve. But getting involved can be a daunting undertaking, especially if it is your first time volunteering. This pathway is designed to help you confidently become an active volunteer within the profession. Register today to secure your seat.
