2020 ISFAA Pre-Conference Sessions

This year we are hosting two pre-conference sessions: Application Process and Cash Management. Both sessions will be held from 9:30am to approximately 12:30pm on Wednesday, January 29, 2020. Please only register for one session, since they are being held concurrently. There are 30 seats available for each session. Registration will close on Friday, January 17, 2020, or when all seats are filled for the session.

You must be an ISFAA member to attend the pre-conference sessions, but there is no cost for the training session or credential exams – this is one of the many ISFAA membership perks! You may attend a pre-conference session even if you are not attending the 2020 Winter Conference. If you plan to attend the 2020 Winter Conference, you must register for that separately

Online NASFAA Credential Trainings

We have received requests to provide online NASFAA Credential Training sessions. We contacted NASFAA about this option and were told we could only offer the sessions in-person. If there is a particular topic you would like to attend but are unable to due to timing or location, please consider hosting a session at your institution. We will try to accommodate any specific topic requests based on trainers' availability in your area. Contact Danielle Hayden or Sarah Owen for more information on hosting a NASFAA Credential Training session.
