President's Message
by Dan Mann, MASFAA President

Greetings! Welcome to the Winter 2005 edition of the MASFAA Moments Newsletter. The newsletter is designed to keep you updated on activities of MASFAA, our state associations, and our individual members, as well as provide information that is useful to each of us as financial aid administrators. I hope that you will take the time to review.

This newsletter highlights the 43rd annual MASFAA conference that was recently held in Charleston, WV. Congratulations to President Howard Thomas, Program Co-Chairs Leo Hertling and JoAnn Ross, and Local Arrangements Chair Candi Frazier for putting together another outstanding MASFAA conference. Also, thanks to our colleagues from West Virginia for their hospitality and making this event a huge success!

This newsletter also provides information on the goals and activities of the 2005-06 MASFAA Executive Council. If you have any questions related to these items, please feel free to contact me or a member of the Executive Council.

Thanks to Michiale Schneider for serving as our 2005-06 MASFAA Newsletter editor. If you have an article, research, best practice or other items that you wish to include in future newsletters, please send to Michiale. Our newsletter is only as good as the materials that are provided.

Finally, thank you for the opportunity to serve as your MASFAA president. Please let me know if you have suggestions on how MASFAA can better serve our membership. I look forward to seeing many of you as I travel throughout the MASFAA region during the upcoming year.

Dan Mann
MASFAA President
