Subject: 2010 Federal Student Aid Conference Information

FSA’s fall conference will be held in Orlando, Florida at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel from November 30 to December 3, 2010.  To date, there are over 2,500 financial aid professionals registered for the conference and we anticipate that over 5,000 will ultimately attend this event.

This year’s program is quite intensive. We are offering approximately 57 breakout training sessions educating the financial aid community on Federal student loan regulations, processing, servicing, reconciliation, and system(s) usage, as well as data security updates, program integrity issues, cohort default rates, and more.  New this year, we will host sessions with the Departments of Labor and Veterans Affairs.  It is going to be a very busy week, so please plan on being there for four full days.

We have just posted our tentative session list to our Web site at http://fsaconferences.ed.gov/program10.html.  In the coming months, we will post the conference schedule followed by the conference session presentations in early November.

In an effort to conserve natural resources, reduce waste, minimize our impact on the environment and lower conference costs, we will not be providing any session presentations at the conference.  Once posted on our Web site, please plan to print out the presentations of those sessions you wish to attend and bring them to the conference.

We look forward to seeing you in Orlando, FL!
