“Financial Aid All Stars, Hit It Out of the Park”, such an appropriate theme for the TASFAA 2016 Conference, held in Frisco. Conveniently located by the Dr. Pepper Ballpark. Though the season was over for the Frisco RoughRiders, the park was lite up Wednesday night. Awesome view from my hotel room.
Flipping through the conference agenda, it was difficult to decide which sessions to attend. One of my favorites was a student panel. Listening to students talk about what is important to them about the financial aid process. Not a surprise, communication, and methods of communicating, being the topic of discussion.
During Thursday’s lunch, as I was chatting with Lisa Blazer, NASFAA Chair, it became obvious that SWASFAA is a great hands with Denise Welch as incoming President and Shannon Crossland incoming President-Elect. TASFAA sure represents at the regional and national level.
I don’t think I walked past a TASFAA member without hearing “thank you for attending our conference.” Talk about making one feel welcomed, wow!
Thank you, TASFAA, for inviting me to an awesome conference! Had a great time and learned so much. Every conference presents a learning opportunity.
Looking forward to “sharing” my experiences from the AASFAA and LASFAA conferences. What a great organization we are all part of!!
