President’s Message

Welcome colleagues and friends!

It is an honor to welcome you to the New Hampshire of Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NHASFAA) website---a place where I hope that you will be able to connect and network with colleagues, find meaningful and useful information, and refer to frequently as a resource that supports your role as a financial aid professional.

NHASFAA is the go-to network for financial aid professionals in New Hampshire. Our Association is run by an all-volunteer Council, comprised of a very active group of financial aid administrators and colleagues committed to helping students achieve the dream of a college education.

A 501(c)(3) organization, NHASFAA’s history dates back to the late 1960’s, James Reynolds having served as the Association’s first President, with official By-Laws of the Association having been adopted in 1978. Our Association celebrated its 10th annual NHASFAA conference in 2016 and continues to be a staple in the New Hampshire financial aid and higher education communities.

Some of the benefits of a NHASFAA membership include:

  • Professional development and robust training
  • An annual conference
  • Networking opportunities
  • Leadership development
  • Monthly newsletter

I want you to be involved! Please consider serving on one of our committees, writing for our newsletter, moderating a session at our conference, attending one of our networking events, or offering a helping hand when it comes to running our all-volunteer Association. If you have ideas, suggestions or comments, I want to hear from you! Please call or email me.

It is an honor to serve and to lead this terrific association.
