Subject: 2011 Federal Student Aid Conference Information

FSA’s fall conference will be held in Las Vegas, NV at the MGM Grand Conference Center from November 29 to December 2, 2011.  To date, there are over 6,000 financial aid professionals registered for the conference.

We are offering approximately 60 breakout training sessions over the course of four days on a range of topics including federal student loan regulations, processing, servicing, reconciliation, and system(s) usage, as well as data security, program integrity, cohort default rates and more.

We have just posted the tentative agenda to our website at http://fsaconferences.ed.gov/program11.html. In the coming months, we plan to post the individual session presentations.

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 website, please plan to print out the presentations of those sessions you wish to attend and bring them to the conference. You will also have the ability to download them to your smart phone or tablet.

Due to an October 1st increase in per diem for Las Vegas, NV the new rate for all conference hotels is $99.

On behalf of the Conference Services Team, we look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas, NV!
