Region 5 - South Florida


Dear Region V,

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve as your 2020-2021 Region V Representative. The FASFAA Board is planning exciting things for us this year.

FASFAA is made up of dedicated financial aid professionals like you, who continue to make this an effective, community-centered organization. What makes our association successful is our ability to provide relevant training opportunities, informative workshops, online resources, connections with fellow colleagues, and so much more. But to continue doing this work, we need and want to hear from you! If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me directly and be sure to stay connected by reading the FASFAA Listserv.

Additionally, the FASFAA Board enthusiastically invites you to be a part of our association in any way that is possible for you. Opportunities you may consider include: volunteering for one of our committees, attending FASFAA webinars, presenting a session, attending a regional workshop and/or the FASFAA annual conference, or writing an article for the FASFAA newsletter.

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to represent your interests and needs, and I look forward to seeing your participation this year as we work together to see the possibilities and expand our horizons!
