President's Welcome

The strength of our ILASFAA members, committees, and volunteers never cease to amaze me. ILASFAA has held several successful events this year with planning underway for many more in these next months. The Membership committee has hosted After Hours events, Training and Development conducted the Fall Workshops, providing needed training for over 200 of our members, and Diversity Issues carried out the Reality Store event for 300 very excited 8th graders at Gompers Junior High School.

As we strive to increase financial aid awareness in our state, College and Awareness Preparation (CAP) is providing important resources for students and parents with FAFSA and Financial Aid night events. These events, held in partnership with schools, colleges and universities, help build awareness of financial aid programs. I encourage you to host or consider volunteering at an event in your local community. ILASFAA Formula and Rules & Operations are working closely with ISAC making recommendations, planning for the 14/15 award year and start up processing. Planning for our Spring Legislative event is underway and ILASFAA continues to build legislative relationships, advocating for the students in Illinois.

I hope you are all looking forward to our annual ILASFAA Conference, taking place April 2-4th, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Springfield, IL. The conference committees have been hard at work planning a fun, informative agenda, so please stay tune for upcoming announcements and registration.

Thank you to all of our ILASFAA members and for the everyday events that you do for our students. We have a great group of volunteers! Be sure to check out the ILASFAA photo gallery for our ILASFAA Pink and Reality Store pictures. Continue to get involved and pay it forward each day!
