To request an appointment, please send an e-mail with three date and time preferences to AskAFed@ed.gov no later than 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, November 26.  We will schedule your appointment and send you an e-mail confirmation.  Appointments are available on a first- come, first-served basis.  If you are unable to schedule an appointment, there will be plenty of FSA staff available to assist you throughout the day at our Ask-a-Fed area in the Resource Center.

Session Presentations, Program and Agenda
Beginning on November 19, we will post session presentations as they become available.  We have posted the final agenda and conference program for your reference.  The conference program and agenda will also be provided to you at the conference.
