President's Message
November 2012

Greetings everyone,

On behalf of the New York State Financial Aid Administrators Association, I would like to welcome you to our new and improved website. It is a valuable tool that provides accurate and timely information to our over 1,400 members. It also serves as a resource to the students and families of New York State as well as any others interested in the various aspects of financing a higher education. Our blog, the Empire Chat, provides its participants an option to discuss, debate and react to issues regarding financial aid administration.

Check the NY Buzzz for upcoming events in your area and other announcements. We encourage you to visit our website and utilize its services frequently for the latest in financial aid administration. We welcome your comments and suggestions as we continue to improve our media services.
