NCASFAA 2023 Fall Virtual Conference Information


NCASFAA’s Fall Virtual Conference is going to be held November 6-7, 2023 via Zoom!  The Fall Conference Committee has worked hard to provide you with opportunities for personal and professional growth.  We strongly believe that you will find something very pertinent to attend each day of the conference.

Training topics will include federal and state compliance, information about the NC Next Scholarship, valuable information about the FAFSA Simplification Act, and updates from knowledgeable officials from SEAA, SASFAA, and NASFAA.  The conference has been intentionally planned to allow you to go back to your campus with information and ideas to offer your students and parents an improved customer experience, but to also give you the regulatory and process knowledge to be successful.

We hope that you enjoy the virtual conference and leave with the intention to help “Make Dreams Come True!”

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!
