On behalf of the 2019 Board of Directors, welcome to the Southwest Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators! I am truly honored for the opportunity to serve as SWASFAA’s 2019 president and look forward to an exciting year ahead. 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.
I personally invite each of you to get involved and volunteer. Becoming involved will not only help SWASFAA grow, it will enhance your personal growth, help you excel within your day to day work and make lifelong friends (just to name a few). Complete the SWASFAA Volunteer form and let us know what interests you and how you would like to get involved.
The mission of SWASFAA is to enhance the professional development of financial aid administrators within the five-state region of the southwest, which includes Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. The SWASFAA board will work closely with the SWASFAA committees and membership encouraging member participation and promoting volunteerism.
Our conference and boot camp will be held in New Orleans, LA November 10-15, 2019, at the Omni Royal Orleans. We are planning to have an amazing conference packed with informative sessions to enhance your professional development, learn about the Cajun culture and enjoy some of the best food in the world!
Thank you for the honor to serve as SWASFAA president. The most rewarding part on my career as been my volunteer involvement within LASFAAA and SWASFAA and all of the mentors and friends I have made along the way. I look forward to working with each of you throughout the year.
2019 SWASFAA President
