2017-2018 Business Partner Registration


The DE-DC-MD (Tri-State) Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators would like to invite you to become a supporter of our wonderful Association that provides proactive leadership in the Financial Aid Industry by setting new directions for the future, by meeting the needs of its members through high quality education and training, promoting our profession, promoting and maintaining membership, and encouraging active participation by all members.

With the 2017-2018 year already upon us, that means your travel schedules are picking up again. That also means Tri-State is busy planning events for the membership to take place during the fall and spring. We are asking you to consider supporting the Tri-State Association in our mission and join us at our Annual Conference at the
Solomons Conference Center & Marina
Solomons, MD
November 6-8, 2017

This year’s Conference Committee is preparing an outstanding event that will provide excellent training for all levels of financial aid staff, networking opportunities, and a chance to relax with friends and colleagues. Please plan on joining us!  Your participation and attendance at our conference exposes you to a large portion of the membership. Is there not a better way to reach members of an organization than exhibiting at their annual conference?

We hope you choose to be a Business Partner in support of the Tri-State Association and take advantage of the benefits and options available to you.
