2009 Spring Conference Report

Submitted by:  Aristea Williams, Co-Chair, Professional Development & Training Committee

This year's Spring Conference held in Annapolis, MD was a very enjoyable and informative time for everyone. The topics ranged from updating your policies and procedures to enhancing the image of your financial aid office on campus. We also received a legislative update to let us know what is going on in our industry and how we can cope with all of the upcoming changes. The presentation materials will be on the Tri-state listserv very soon. Stay tuned for more upcoming training opportunities from the Professional Development and Training Committee.

Attendees prepare to learn about budgeting
strategies for their students.

Tri-state vendors provide opportunities to showcase
their products to conference participants.
