A Letter from your President, Jennifer Knight:
One of the “perks” of being elected President of OASFAA is the duty to participate on the Western Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (WASFAA) Executive Board (EB) representing our Oregon membership. On June 22 and 23, the WASFAA Executive Board met. The location and timing of the meeting was designed so that the WASFAA EB could be near the WASFAA Sister Dale Brown Summer Institute (SDBSI) held the same week at PSU, because some WASFAA EB members were also on the SDBSI faculty. Two of our OASFAA colleagues served on the faculty – shout out to Kathy Campbell and Mike Johnson! Thanks for representing OASFAA so well! The WASFAA EB attended the WASFAA SDBSI banquet. Boy, was it fun to see our Oregon up and coming financial aid administrators connect and bond over financial aid with colleagues from all the Western regional states. Even the rain didn’t prevent them from ear-to-ear smiles.
