From the President

 Welcome to IASFAA! My name is Brandi L Miller, and I am honored to serve as IASFAA’s 2022-2023 President. If you are looking for a financial aid community that is student-centered, professional development-focused, and community-minded, you have come to the right place.

Our theme this year is, "IASFAA Under Construction-re-imagining and building on the great legacy of IASFAA." IASFAA has a legacy of forever friendships, a generosity of sharing expertise and knowledge, an excellent fall conference, exceptional professional development opportunities, and we are just a fun group. Together this year we will re-imagine and build an even stronger association. We invite you to join us through membership.

We cannot do the great work of our association without volunteers. The Executive Council and I invite you to get involved. We have several opportunities for involvement and at a commitment level that works for you. If you are interested, reach out to myself or a member of the Executive Council. You will not regret it, and you will make forever friends.

Brandi L Miller
2022-2023 IASFAA President
