Welcome to RMASFAA
Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators! RMASFAA exists to promote professional readiness, leadership development and effectiveness, and to ensure the mutual support of persons involved in the administration of student financial aid programs. A strong and vibrant association, our members are as varied as our spectacular landscape - from large public land-grant universities to small vocational and technical colleges - RMASFAA offers a professional development opportunity for everyone. The beauty of RMASFAA indeed lies in our truly regional breadth and scope of talent and expertise; we are blessed with close-knit friendships that belie our geography. We make it easy to learn from each other and to develop as student aid professionals.
Your 2015-2016 Board of Directors is already working to provide yet another year of fantastic programming and training to the association. I encourage you to visit our website often to see the latest information on upcoming training events and RMASFAA news. As a member, you also have access to a comprehensive database of your colleagues who have a wealth of knowledge from which to draw on and you can view current career opportunities available throughout the region. Stay tuned for information on RMASFAA's nationally-recognized Summer Institute to be held June 2016 in historic Golden, Colorado! And of course, you'll want to plan on joining us in the stunningly beautiful Black Hills for our Annual Conference and Leadership Pipeline class as we convene upon Rapid City, South Dakota in October 2016.
This is sure to be a year of exciting growth, change, and innovation for RMASFAA. With a new Strategic Long Range Plan (SLRP) directing association activities through 2018, I have challenged your Board of Directors to "Be Transformational" during their time as officers and committee chairs; absolutely everything we do is fair-game to be enhanced or totally re-imagined, if it will help us to better position RMASFAA to deliver on its mission to the membership. I warmly invite your input and participation as we put into motion the directives of our new SLRP and would love to hear from you if there is something more RMASFAA could be doing to support you.
It is my honor to serve as your President for 2015-2016. Together, let's make this a great year!
With every good wish,
President, Rocky Mountain Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators
