Presenters & Moderators

Influence the Future of the Student Financial Aid Community

The submission window for NASFAA 2024 presentations is now closed.

Thank you for your willingness to share your expertise with other NASFAA members. The Conference Program Task Force will review all submissions and make selections for inclusion in the program. Submitters will be notified of status after the selection process has taken place. 

Selected sessions will be presented in person June 16-19, 2024 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, or online July 8-12, 2024 for the separate NASFAA 2024 Virtual Conference.

How Are Proposals Selected?

Proposals are peer-reviewed and selected by the 2024 National Conference Program Task Force with a primary responsibility to curate high-quality content. The task force places a strong emphasis on ensuring that the slate of selected proposals and presenters represent the diversity of higher education across our nation. Submissions by speakers from historically underrepresented groups are highly encouraged, as are presentation topics covering diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives within higher education. 

The committee evaluates the quality of submissions based on the following criteria: 

  • Relevant to current needs and interests of attendees, including evolving societal challenges affecting higher education 
  • Potential for audience engagement  
  • Practical application of material
  • Content encompasses broad audience appeal
  • Speaker credentials and command of topic
  • Speakers who reflect the rich diversity represented in higher education 

Vendor sales pitches are not acceptable session content. Vendor-only proposals have a very low acceptance rate, but will be considered if they share proven methods across a number of successful clients or industry landscapes. To increase chances of selection, vendors should invite a higher education institution to co-present. If vendors do not wish to go through the proposal process and would like to present alone, they are encouraged to utilize the Business Solutions session option to present on their products and services.
