    MSFAA Leadership Program 21-22 Application 2.pdf


    What is it?

    The MSFAA Leadership program was created to enrich the knowledge, skills, attitudes and abilities of the leaders in our state to foster a common leadership path that can enhance the succession opportunities needed for the next generation of leaders in our offices and in this great association.

    How are participants selected?

    Participants may be nominated by their supervisor or can apply directly with supervisors support.  The applications are reviewed by the MSFAA Leadership Committee.

    What is the curriculum?

    The Leadership Committee creates a 2-day workshop that develops a wealth of resources delivered via presenters, readings, videos and networking opportunities. You will experience topics that will enhance your leadership abilities and skills that can be immediately incorporated into your daily work/life activities. 

    When is the Leadership Program?

    The 2-day leadership event will be held at the beautiful Crystal Mountain resort in Thompsonville, MI, October 27-29th, 2021.

    Application to the MSFAA Leadership Program is open to association members. Participants will be selected by the Leadership Committee based on the applicant’s own merits as presented in the application and supporting documents. The committee seeks representation from a cross-section of the association with diversity and balance in areas such as institution type and individuals attributes.


    The Committee looks for:
     


    • Evidence of commitment to the profession of financial aid.
    • Express desire to pursue involvement in professional development activities at some level.
    • Ability to make the time commitment.

      Applicant must have the full support of their direct supervisor and employer. Applicants are required to submit a letter of recommendation from his/her direct supervisor.

      Individuals may nominate themselves, but must provide evidence that the employer will allow time to attend and financially support travel expenses to the event.  All other expenses (accommodation and meals) will be covered by MSFAA.

      The event will be limited to twenty-five individuals. Selection will be based on the criteria specified on the application form. Applications are due Wednesday, September 29, 2021 by 5:00pm.
