President's Welcome

Welcome to the website for the Illinois Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (ILASFAA)!

We are a volunteer organization offering training, networking and professional development opportunities for those interested in college financial aid in Illinois. It is my privilege to serve as President for 2015-2016.

Know that we are constantly working to represent the interests of Illinois schools and students. As President, I will work to ensure that the needs of ILASFAA members are addressed at the regional and national levels, through the Midwest Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (MASFAA) and National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA).

If you have any questions about the association, please do not hesitate to contact me-or my fellow members of the President's Council-at the email addresses listed below. Do also feel free to reach out to your regional or sector representative on the Executive Board.

Each year, members volunteer to take on leadership roles within ILASFAA. I want to thank every member of the 2015-2016 Executive Board and all Committee Chairs! ILASFAA could not accomplish everything we do without you!

Members, please consider volunteering for one of our many committees. No matter what your interest, we have something for everyone! The volunteer form is part of your ILASFAA account: Volunteer!

We will constantly update the 'Notes and News' section, so check back often!

4/19/15 - Complete the Conference Evaluation

ILASFAA members banded together to participate in the reality store, held in November at Kershaw Elementary in Chicago. 23 member institutions were represented, and over 40 volunteers helped make the day a great experience for the kids! Thanks to the members of the diversity issues committee for planning and executing this annual event.

Our very own Sue Swisher, President-Elect for MASFAA with Aaron Steffens, MASFAA President (2014/15) and Sara Beth Holman, MASFAA Past-President at the MASFAA Planning Retreat last week in Dubuque, IA.

It was a great learning experience for me and I brought ideas back to help me better serve our membership. Sara Beth will be our visitor from MASFAA at our conference next year.

Thank you all for the opportunity to attend. Sincerely, Janet
