Guest Speaker and Special Guests

Welcome to the MASFAP Conference Mini-Site!
Greetings from the future, fellow members of the MASFAP galaxy,
Your 2015 MASFAP Jedi (Executive) Council has been working diligently all year to provide you with the best possible experience as members of our association, and our efforts culminate in what is shaping up to be an out-of-this-world fall conference!
Please plan to join us November 9-11 as we travel to the distant planet of Lake Ozark, Missouri. Park your light freighter at the Lodge of Four Seasons, and prepare for an engaging two and a half days immersed in conversations about where our industry is heading and what our role in its future might be as we we celebrate our past with a look back over the last fifty years of financial aid history since the signing of the Higher Education Act on November 8, 1965.
Our conference will kick off with a keynote address on the topic of the future of higher education provided by nationally renowned author and public speaker, Anya Kamenetz. Please venture over to our link to Guest Speaker and Special Guests to learn more about Kamenetz and her interest in and research into the future of higher education. You may even want to take the time to read her best-selling book Generation Debt prior to attending the conference so you can prepare questions for her – she’ll be participating on a panel of higher education leaders following her keynote address who will spend time discussing the role of financial aid in the future of higher education.
With sessions geared at everyone from newcomers to aid office Directors and Business Officers, I feel confident in saying this is the conference you’re looking for.
The best part? We’ll be offering the same discount we’ve offered the previous two years! If an institution’s Financial Aid/Student Financial Services Director registers, pays and attends the full conference, any/all other attendees from the institution attend the conference without paying a conference registration!
Another bonus of attending the conference - MASFAP will offer a $100 reduction on membership renewal for the 2016 year if membership is renewed along with registration for the fall 2015 conference and if membership renewal and conference fees are paid prior to December 31, 2015. See your registration form for information about payment dates.
Thank you for visiting our conference mini-site and I look forward to seeing you in November. Until then, May the Funds be With You!
2015 MASFAP President
