Welcome to EASFAA

We are delighted to have you as part of the Eastern Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (EASFAA) community. We are excited to announce that over the next year, we will be building a comprehensive strategic plan set to debut at our annual conference in May 2025.

Our commitment to advocacy remains at the forefront of our mission. We believe in the power of engaging in hard conversations, fostering mentorship, and taking calculated risks to drive meaningful change in both our association and our field. Consistency, discipline, and the pursuit of continuous improvement are the cornerstones of our efforts as we navigate the challenges and opportunities ahead.

As Sir Isaac Newton famously said, "If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants." We stand on the legacy of excellence established by financial aid administrators before us, and we are dedicated to building upon this foundation. Our goal is to honor their contributions while pushing the boundaries of what we can achieve together.

Your involvement and support are crucial as we shape the future of financial aid. Together, we will advocate for our students, mentor the next generation of leaders, and strive for excellence in all that we do.

Upcoming Events
Keep an eye out for EASFAA at your state conferences! I’ll be there to present the EASFAA update as well as hear from you during EASFAA strategy sessions. We want to hear from you about how EASFAA could be better.

Our annual conference will be held from Tuesday, May 9 to Friday, May 12 at Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Ledyard, CT - with the theme of High Stakes, High Rewards: Thriving with the hand you’re dealt. We hope to see all of you there!

Thank You
