President's Welcome

Welcome to the Illinois Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (ILASFAA) Website! We’re happy you’re here!

I want to start the year by expressing my deepest gratitude to you for your unwavering dedication, tireless efforts, and steadfast commitment to excellence, especially as we navigate the new FAFSA Simplification. Your contributions have been instrumental in supporting not only our students and families across Illinois, but also your colleagues and the broader financial aid community.

The sense of outreach and community within ILASFAA has flourished, serving as a testament to the strength and unity that stems from your hard work and mutual support. By continuing to collaborate and share our knowledge, we reinforce our collective mission and move closer to achieving our shared objectives.

As you may know, volunteers play a crucial role in supporting and furthering the mission of ILASFAA. Our volunteers bring a diverse range of perspectives, ideas, and experiences to the table. We need you! If this sounds like you, we encourage you to review our Committees page and consider getting involved.

Regardless of your level of involvement, we are always interested in hearing from the financial aid community. Let us know what works and what doesn’t work. ILASFAA has many training and development opportunities coming your way, but we need your input to allow ILASFAA to continue to cater to the needs of the community.

Thank you for being the backbone of this association and for all that you do to make a difference in the lives of those we serve.

Warm regards,

Bambie Roy

ILASFAA President 2024-2025
