While not intended to parallel the changes to the FAFSA timeline, it seems that having the MASFAA Officer Nomination Form available in October is doing just that. This form is now available on the MASFAA website and will remain open until the end of January. All we have done is extend the time for making nominations as the deadline for nominations is similar to what it has been in the past. The board made this move so that the form would be available during its annual conference.
The conference is (was!) an ideal time to identify and visit with potential nominees as well as garner publicity for the overall process. Please take a few moments to encourage a colleague to run or consider running for a position yourself. It is your duty as a member to submit nominations. Nominations are currently being sought for President-Elect (3 year term), Vice President (2 year term) and two Delegate-at-Large positions (2 year term).
