Dear friends and colleagues,

The 2014 SASFAA Annual conference held in beautiful Jacksonville, Florida last month was deemed an overwhelming success by all who attended! One of the reasons attributed for that success was the generous contributions of our Business Associates in our Priority Training and Standard Training Sponsorships. 
SASFAA just cannot function without their willingness to offer not only financial support, but also training assistance when offering speakers for some of the sessions.

SASFAA offers several different options for Sponsorship and we are very fortunate to have five Priority Training Sponsors and thirty-two Standard Training Sponsors.

The Priority Training Sponsors are:

EdFinancial Services
LoanLook/i3 Group (first time sponsor for SASFAA)
USA Funds

The Standard Training Sponsors are:

Access Group
American Student Assistance/SALT
CashCourse, National Endowment for Financial Education

This year due to all the weather-related issues, our Sponsors were challenged on many levels. Just getting to the conference was an adventure for some of them as well as their booth items! So SASFAA truly appreciates and thanks them all for just being there! We also want to thank them for their wonderful spirit in participating in the Booth Decorating Contest. The winner: Next Gen Web Solutions was honored when SASFAA made a donation to the conference charity on their behalf.

So again, a big THANK YOU to all of our Sponsors! And see you in Memphis in 2015.

Respectfully submitted,

Janet Nowicki, Sponsorship Chair
