Welcome to RMASFAA
Welcome to the website home of the Rocky Mountain Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (RMASFAA)! Let me extend a handshake or maybe even a hug whether you are new or old in visiting us here.
Dating back to 1968, RMASFAA has been dedicated to supporting this profession by providing effective training and leadership development. This work can be hard and complex, and a supporting network of colleagues and peers is significant in complementing what we can all do individually at our institutions. In your individual mission to serve students and families, this group serves to support you in making that more effective and efficient. We stand ready to serve member institutions and states by being actively engaged with you and additionally with our National Association (NASFAA).
On behalf of the 2019-2020 Board of Directors, welcome! I am honored on behalf of this board to serve as this year's president. Our board is dedicated to preserving the ideas and practices of those that have come before us and kept this organization strong. We want to hear from you. Please review the board members and reach out to me or anyone on the board in respect to ideas and collaboration and questions. We are here for you.
RMASFAA is planning wonderful training and conference opportunities for members to network and get involved in many different activities. Look for dates and announcements regarding our nationally recognized (and it is fair to say that) Summer Institute this summer. We will be back in Colorado Springs this June. Come October, we will be in Nebraska to wrap up the year. In between, stay tuned. We will have leadership available at each State Conference to relay relevant regional and national information.
We face challenging times ahead regarding enrollment impacts on campus and the role of the financial aid office will (I suspect) become even more relevant. We are here to be active in that development and navigate those changes. I want to say I have seen it all but know that may not be true. That is part of what makes this profession so fascinating and enjoyable, it isn't dull work. Another part of this profession that I enjoy most is you. I have grown professionally but more impactful is how I have personally grown. This network has created lasting friendships. I thank you for that enrichment and encourage all of you to participate and gain the same.
2019-2020 RMASFAA President
