2021 Vendor Policies and Procedures


We are excited to share the Fall 2021 Conference and Bootcamp sponsorship opportunities for SWASFAA and NMASFAA. Our theme, "No Masking Our Resilience" reflects how the Financial Aid profession responded to the last year and half of whatever was thrown our way.  In keeping with the resilience theme, members who are not able to attend an in-person event, can still experience the conference through live streaming of general and some break-out sessions.

This year we will be utilizing the Whova App to maximize your brand's exposure.  When the conference committee is ready, sponsors will receive an email with their personalized Whova link for their virtual booth.  You can learn more about what is coming here:  https://whova.com/pages/whova-app-exhibitor-guide/?source=email.
