The six working groups and corresponding volunteer coordinators are: Registration/Moderator Packets/Online Agenda (Renee Armentrout—Iowa Wesleyan); Audio/Video (Gary Adams—Iowa Student Loan); Guest Services (Cindy Seyfer—Univ. Of Iowa); Publicity/Communications (Erin Gjerde - Wells Fargo and Michelle Dunn—Grand View Univ.); Entertainment/Decorations/Charity (Shelly Brimeyer—Univ. Of Iowa) and Meals/Hotel Room/Vendor Relations (Sarah Harrington—Univ. of Iowa).
We were glad to see that quite a few people present had participated in the previous MASFAA Conference when Iowa was the host nine years ago, and got even better when most hands in the ballroom went up after being asked to do so if they were willing to help out. We are definitely ready to showcase a great environment for the upcoming MASFAA conference, Growing Connections For Success, in Coralville-Iowa October 4-7, 2015!
