SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Advisory Committee on Student Financial 

Assistance is established under Section 491 of the Higher Education Act 

of 1965 as amended by Public Law 100-50 (20 U.S.C. 1098). The Advisory 

Committee serves as an independent source of advice and counsel to the 

Congress and the Secretary of Education on student financial aid 

policy. Since its inception, the congressional mandate requires the 

Advisory Committee to conduct objective, nonpartisan, and independent 

analyses on important aspects of the student assistance programs under 

Title IV of the Higher Education Act. In addition, Congress expanded 

the Advisory Committee's mission in the Higher Education Opportunity 

Act of 2008 to include several important areas: access, Title IV 

modernization, early information and needs assessment and review and 

analysis of regulations. Specifically, the Advisory Committee is to 

review, monitor and evaluate the Department of Education's progress in 

these areas and report recommended improvements to Congress and the 

Secretary.

    The Advisory Committee has scheduled this teleconference for annual 

election of officers and to approve its Fiscal Year 2012 work plan.

    Space for the teleconference meeting is limited and you are 

encouraged to register early if you plan to attend. You may register by
