Welcome to NYSFAAA

Darrin Rooker

Welcome to the NYSFAAA website. If you are a member happy 5OTH anniversary. If you are a guest, we welcome you and hope you stick around, become a member and return frequently.
NYSFAAA is a non-profit organization comprised of nearly 1500 Financial Aid Professionals as well as other Higher Education Providers such as High School College Bound Guidance Professionals. Our prime directive is to help promote equal access to education in New York State. We do that by Advocacy on behalf of our members, our students, and a ton of training. We train and support ourselves on and through the complications of the laws and regulations.
I say support and through because we are one family and one of the most important things about NYSFAAA is the networking and solutions our members share with each other. Through our list serve, Empire BLOG, Regional Meetings, 12 or more webinars a year (FREE with the annual $70 membership fee), nationally recognized Novice Training, Leadership Training, Annual Conference and various other actives you will find that the networking that occurs is always the cherry on the NYSFAAA cake that I and all of us are so proud of.
So again HAPPY ANNIVERSARY NYSFAAA. If you are not a member – trust me – IT PAYS TO BE A MEMBER. Join the family.
Howard Leslie, NYSFAAA President
