Applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, Feb. 9, 2024, for priority consideration.
The next New Director Group Coaching cohort, provided by NASFAA's Blue Icon Advisors, is starting next month. Designed for financial aid administrators with less than one year of experience at the director level, you'll work alongside a small group of other new financial aid directors as you discuss compliance-related matters, develop an operational calendar, learn about how to identify and support your staff's professional development needs, and more. The start date for the next six-week cohort is March 18, 2024. Register today to reserve your spot.
