A Note from Your President, Brian Hultgren:

Hello OASFAA Members!

What another outstanding Annual Conference at the always beautiful Salishan Resort, it truly was OASFAA in Paradise. It was such a pleasure meeting so many of you throughout the conference and for those I haven’t met I look forward to connecting with you throughout the year. Special thanks to all of the conference committee members and our three outstanding co-chairs Shauna Harper, Jess Kelly and Carlos Villarroel. So much goes into planning an event like this and we are very grateful to all our volunteers.

I am so very honored and excited to represent OASFAA this year as President and to serve alongside the rest of the Executive Council for 2019-2020. Coming from Colorado four years ago, OASFAA has truly welcomed me with open arms. It is great to see so many passionate financial aid administrators working together for each other and for the students we serve. The commitment we have from our volunteers to provide trainings, professional development, mentoring, and collaboration throughout the State of Oregon is extremely special. I hope to keep this strong tradition going for 2019-2020 with the help of so many of you.  

If you are new to financial aid, new to OASFAA, or work closely with a financial aid professional and are interested in volunteering, we have a job for you! Our OASFAA committees do so many great things throughout the year including; leadership development, training events, networking, newsletters, high school nights, legislative updates, etc. None of this would be possible without volunteers. There are so many opportunities for all kinds of skill levels, interests, and time commitments. If you are interested in getting involved please fill out our volunteer preferences form.

I wish everyone a great 2019-2020 year and happy springtime!
