It is my honor and privilege to serve as IASFAA President for 2016-2017. I look forward to working with my fellow 2016-2017 Executive Council members as we continue to fulfill the mission and goals of the association. The coming year will be one of changes as we work through PPY and Early FAFSA. Our planning and programming is being developed with an eye toward preparing our membership for these challenges.
As we begin the year, I would like to thank all of you who said, "Yes", when I asked you to chair/co-chair or serve on a committee or run for office. IASFAA's strength is built upon the activism of its members and we could not accomplish all that we do without you!
Please feel free to contact me or any member of the Executive Council if you have suggestions, questions or concerns about how IASFAA can better serve you.
2016-17 IASFAA President
