2019 TASFAA FALL CONFERENCE COUNTDOWN

2019 TASFAA FALL CONFERENCE COUNTDOWN

The conference is 1 week away!

 

October 9-11
Historic Hilton Fort Worth
815 Main St.
Fort Worth, TX

 

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

We will welcome Robin Roberts as our opening keynote speaker on Wednesday afternoon (10/9).

Robin is an award-winning speaker, author, entertainer, and Certified Consulting Hypnotist from the Houston area.

Robin will kick-off our conference with an inspiring and thought-provoking demonstration of how we are all connected – to each other, to our clients, and to our own amazing minds! Your understanding of the influence of connection will be expanded as you witness, right before your eyes, the power of the subconscious mind. Once you witness these connections in action, your experience of the conference will be enhanced.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

Each year the TASFAA Fall Conference Committee selects a charity in our host city to benefit from the generosity of conference attendees. We are pleased to have selected Read Fort Worth (readfortworth.org) as this year’s community organization. Read Fort Worth seeks to ensure that 100% of Fort Worth third-graders are reading to learn – not learning to read – by 2025.

In addition to contributing an item and purchasing tickets for the Raffle, you can contribute to this worthy organization by participating in DENIM DAYS and wearing jeans!

For a cash (or credit card) donation you can purchase a sticker indicating that you are wearing denim in support of Read Fort Worth. Stickers will be available at the conference for $2 a day (one sticker) or $5 for all three days of the conference (three stickers). Additionally, attendees who bring a raffle item will receive one Denim Days sticker. And, each attendee who donates a book(s) to Read Fort Worth will also receive one Denim Days sticker.

A check and all books collected will be presented to a representative of Read Fort Worth on Friday morning.

Just think- if each attendee were to contribute $5, we would donate at least $1,500 to Read Fort Worth!

To learn more, see the Community Service page of the conference website.

WELLNESS EVENT

TASFAA Mack Adams Scholarship Fund Fit-Dice Event

Join us on Thursday, October 10 from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m.

$25 entry fee (event t-shirt included)

How will this work?

  • Two dice will be rolled.
  • One determines the activity and one determines the duration.
  • For instance: squats for 30 seconds.
  • All activities will be presented with beginner, intermediate, and advanced variations.

Trophies will be awarded to Outstanding Male and Outstanding Female. And, the first 15 members who register will receive participation medals.

All funds raised through this event benefit the TASFAA Mack C. Adams scholarship fund. This fund helps defray professional development expenses for members who may not otherwise be able to attend TAFSAA conferences and training due to institutional budgetary constraints.

Mack C. Adams was instrumental in creating the Texas Association of Student Financial Administrators (TASFAA) and served as its first president (1968-1969). He continued to serve the Association as a member until his retirement in 1995.
