"A Whole New World – Navigating the Challenges Together” 

“A Whole New World – Navigating the Challenges Together” is GASFAA’s theme for the 2020-21 academic year and the entire GASFAA Executive Board is here to serve, you, the members. I ran for President because I love GASFAA! I love the people. I love the profession we represent; and, believe it or not, I love the challenges that a career in financial aid always brings.  With the onset of the pandemic, as an Association and as financial aid administrators, we are facing some of our greatest challenges, but we will not grow weary. Now more than ever, we need each other.

As members of GASFAA, what makes us strong is our unity and commitment to each other. GASFAA’s Vision “Prepare dynamic financial aid leaders to achieve excellence in the administration of financial aid” is central to all of our goals. We are here to serve the needs of our members. We will continue to be strong, creative, and flexible as we plan new and innovative ways to increase knowledge and build efficiencies for greater compliance standards.  I hope you navigate the challenges with us by participating in GASFAA’s workshops, spring conference, and other activities. Whether we meet in person or virtually, GASFAA is committed to your success and you will never have to face challenges alone.

As an Association, we also support a world where no man is ever to be judged by ethnicity, race, or socioeconomic background. We are all human together and deserve the same respect and dignity. Wlimani Humphries is our Diversity Chair this year. He and I are committed to exploring and discovering new ways to improve diversity and inclusion in the financial aid community. Through our purposeful actions, we can all be a part of making the world a better place!

Stay well until we see each other again,

Maria Hammett
GASFAA President 2020-21
