2018-19 Business Partner Registration
The DE-DC-MD (Tri-State) and West Virginia Associations of Student Financial Aid Administrators invite you to become a supporter of our wonderful Associations. These Associations provide 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.
Tri-State and WVASFAA are busy planning events for the membership to take place during the fall and spring. We are asking you to consider supporting Tri-State Association and the WVASFAA in our mission and join us at our combined Annual Conference at the Rocky Gap Casino Resort in Flintstone, MD.
This year’s Conference Committee is preparing a fantastic 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.
