Calling all KASFAA members!

It is time to put your thinking caps on and submit those session proposals for the upcoming KASFAA Spring 2019 Conference.

We are trying out a new submission process this year and here is how you do it:

Go to KASFAA.org

On the home page there is a link at the bottom of the page to “Submit Your 2019 Conference Session Proposal”

Make sure you have your login information handy so that you can access the proposal page.

You can submit the topic you want presented with a brief description of what you would like to be covered; you can even go as far as recommending a presenter!

The more proposals we get the better!

Thanks for your support in making the KASFAA Spring 2019 Conference the best one yet!

KASFAA Fall Board Meeting

From Sara Vancil

The Board of Directors just had our fall board meeting.  I wanted to provide some key updates to the entire membership.  Our various committees have been working diligently to fulfill their missions as well as the goals laid out for them in our three-year Strategic Long Range Plan.

  • When we decided to stop having our on-site fall training, we convened an ad-hoc task force to look at “drive-in” trainings. This fall we are offering two NASFAA U credential trainings at five different sites.  We have over 80 KASFAA members registered!  At the winter board meeting, the board will be discussing if we should move from an ad-hoc task force to a permanent Professional Development committee, which would hold trainings of various types throughout the year separate from the spring conference.


  • Our Corporate Support committee along with our Associate Member representative have been meeting to discuss how we can make membership and conference attendance most impactful for our vendors. The consensus has been to not move toward a tiered sponsorship plan but rather to focus on equal exposure for all our associate members.  They will be looking for a la carte options to go along with the traditional sponsorship available during spring conference.  A big thank you to all of our associate members who help support KASFAA!
