On behalf of the 2018-2019 Board of Directors, welcome to the Rocky Mountain Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators! I am truly honored for the opportunity to serve as RMASFAA’s 2018-2019 president. I am proud and humbled to follow so many great leaders of our association and look forward to making a positive contribution to our continued success.
From the beginning, RMASFAA’s mission has been to promote preparation, leadership development, effectiveness, and mutual support of persons involved in financial aid administration as well as assisting in the implementation of programs that will have a positive impact on students’ ability to pay for higher education. RMASFAA also provides excellent opportunities for members to network and get involved in many different activities.
RMASFAA has been and will continue to be a leader in providing professional growth opportunities. Our premier training event and nationally recognized RMASFAA Summer Institute will be held at Colorado College in Colorado Springs, CO June 2-7, 2019. This excellent training event, located in the beautiful Rocky Mountain range, provides outstanding learning opportunities for individuals new to the profession as well as experienced administrators. RMASFAA’s Annual Conference is another learning and networking event so make plans to attend the 2019 RMASFAA Conference in Billings, MT October 20-23, 2019. The conference committee is already hard at work putting together an exceptional program and event.
My goal and promise to the membership is to not only encourage diversity and inclusion but to also “Show Up”. I will show up – just as I am, not knowing all the answers, not being completely ready, and definitely not perfect, but I will still show up. I will show up to do the work, enjoy the journey, be excited about we GET to do, and hopefully get to know more of you.
All my best,
President, Rocky Mountain Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators
