The MASFAA newsletter is published quarterly (December, March,

for communicating with members about issues affecting our profession
as well as to inform members of the ongoing activity of MASFAA committees
and the Executive Council.

by Howard Thomas, MASFAA President
and welcome to the summer installment of MASFAA
The beautiful picture of the New River Gorge Bridge in West Virginia
reminds us that the 43rd annual conference is only a couple of
months away. The Executive Council approved a reduction in the
registration fee this year and set it at only $175. In addition,
room reservations may be made for as little as $79 per night.
Given the lower cost and the outstanding program and activities,
this is a conference that you can’t afford not to attend.
for the conference is available on the MASFAA website.
The conference planning and local arrangements committees are
working hard to put the finishing touches on another outstanding
conference. JoAnn Ross and Leo Hertling and the planning committee
have put together interest sessions that will inform, challenge,
and professionally stimulate you. Candi Frazier and the local
arrangements committee have met for well over a year to provide
you with interesting and fun pre-conference activities and to
insure that your visit to Charleston is a memorable one. My sincere
thanks go to JoAnn, Leo, Candi and all of the wonderful volunteers
who are working to make this a great conference.
As I close out my year as President, I need to thank the membership
for giving me the opportunity to serve MASFAA as your president.
While it has been time consuming, it been a wonderful professional
experience for me. I was pleased to be able to attend seven state
association meetings since the Indianapolis conference and I wanted
to express my appreciation to each of the state presidents for
inviting me and their association members for the warm welcome
I received as I traveled to the seven conferences. Between MASFAA
duties and attendance at NASFAA board of director activities,
I estimated that I traveled approximately 15,000 miles for MASFAA
since last October.
As much as I have enjoyed my year as president, it is time for
new energy and fresh ideas. I look forward to passing the gavel
at the annual conference to my colleague and friend, Dan Mann.
MASFAA will be in good hands.
