NCASFAA’s Spring 2024 conference will take place April 8th -10th (Pre-conference workshops begin April
7th ) at the beautiful Holiday Inn Resort Lumina at Wrightsville Beach North Carolina. We have an action-
packed conference planned for you. The conference committee has been working diligently on the
program to ensure that you will receive the most up to date information on all things financial aid.
The theme this year is “We Will Survive”. Now I know that many of us question that right now with all
of the changes, but after attending this conference you will have the tools to survive!
We look forward to seeing you at the beach.

Our charity, picked by President Cavenaugh, is The Gilbert Scholarship. Rooted right here in North Carolina, The Gilbert Scholarship is a 501c3 tax exempt, non-profit, and helps students from foster care obtain a college degree. Most students have spent years in the system and have aged out. They have no outside support, no place to go for Thanksgiving or Christmas, and no mom or dad to text when life gets hard. Some even enter college without a car or a home. Eventually, the goal is to have one or more Gilbert Scholarships at all 58 community colleges in NC!
