Make Plans to Attend Conference: Keynote Speakers Announced!

Prepare to Make Every Moment Count at the MASFAA Conference. Not only will there be an agenda packed with a wide variety of interest and business solution sessions but the keynote speakers and plenary sessions will offer opportunities for personal and professional growth as well.

The Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at the Ohio State University will share their research. Since 2003, the Institute has been educating the public, building the capacity of allied social justice organizations, and investing in efforts that support equity and inclusion. Their mission is simple: we work to create a just and inclusive society where all people and communities have opportunity to succeed.

Eve Rips, Director of Regional Strategy for Young Invincibles will join us to share YI’s story. Young Invincibles was founded in the summer of 2009, motivated by the recognition that young people’s voices were not being heard in the debate over health care reform. In a little more than a year, ‘YI’ went from a group run out of a law school cafeteria to a national organization, representing the interests of 18 to 34-year-olds. Today, 8 years after its founding, YI supports policies and programs that address economic challenges young people face in our country with a focus on education, jobs and healthcare.

No MASFAA conference would be complete without our NASFAA colleagues. President Justin Draeger and 2017-18 NASFAA Chair Billie Jo Hamilton will be stopping by to update us on what’s going on within our national organization and inside the beltway.

It is only three short months away. Mark your calendars and plan to join us in Dayton October 8-11. Information about registration will be coming shortly!
