    Symposium Exhibitor Form

    MSFAA is starting a new “Tradition” with a 1.5 Day Fall Training Conference. We, as vendors, are invited to take advantage of this opportunity to promote our companies to the MSFAA Membership. The cost will be the same as schools pay $160. A GREAT gift from the Board since it’s the first time hosting an event like this and do not want to over promise and under deliver on attendance, interactions, etc.

    There will be no :50 of Fame, nor any logos on screens ….. just simply booth display and the attendees.

    If you have not yet joined or need to renew your membership, you can do so with this form. When completing a renewal, please check on www.msfaa.org to update any information that may have changed. All exhibitors must be MSFAA members.

    Fall Symposium Training Conference

    The Michigan Student Financial Aid Association (MSFAA) is thrilled to announce our first ever 1.5 Inclusive Office Leadership Symposium this October 27 and October 28, 2019 at the Lansing Crowne Plaza Hotel in Lansing, Michigan.  This new professional development opportunity has been designed to give financial aid professionals the opportunity to enhance their inclusive leadership skills while also being able to obtain credentialing certification for three NASFAA Credentialing Sessions. 

    Highlights of the Inclusive Office Leadership Symposium include:

    Three separate NASFAA Credentialing sessions:  Verification, Student Eligibility, and Professional Judgment. 

    Please note:  These credentialing sessions will be offered in an accelerated format.  Individuals attending are expected to have downloaded session materials and reviewed them prior to attending the credentialing sessions.  Sessions offered will focus on crucial areas.
