Taryn AndersonHello TASFAA friends! 

Your 2020-21 Board and Committee Chairs met in December to continue preparing for events for this year. Thank you to those of you who have renewed your membership for 2020-21. It is not too late to join us if you are looking for training, mentorship, legislative updates, and networking with financial aid professionals across Texas! 

Members can log in and check out our calendar, forums, and event pages as well as update their profile and connect with other members via our online community.  

Events coming this Spring: virtual New Aid Officers Workshop and virtual "Regional" Training.  Also, keep an eye out for information about networking, NASFAA credentialing, and diversity opportunities. 

In the Fall we look forward to seeing everyone at the Sheraton Austin Georgetown Hotel and Conference Center for our Conference October 6-8, 2021. I look forward to seeing you there!
