President's Message
by Dan Mann, MASFAA President

Greetings! Welcome to the Spring 2006 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 time to review this edition.

This newsletter focuses on student success stories. Student success stories remind us why we are in this profession and can be useful when we are communicating with legislators and other external parties. Legislators want to know that their investment in our financial aid programs is producing results, and students/former students are often our most effective spokespersons. If you have not already done so, I would encourage you to develop your own student success stories from your financial aid recipients.

This newsletter also provides the unapproved minutes of the January 2006 meeting of the MASFAA Executive Council held in Cincinnati and information on the upcoming MASFAA Summer Institute and MASFAA Symposium. I hope that you will make plans for you and your staff to participate in these outstanding training activities.

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. I look forward to seeing many of you as I travel to the Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Minnesota conferences during the upcoming weeks. As always, please contact me if you have suggestions on how MASFAA can better serve you.

Dan Mann
MASFAA President
