The office of Student Financial Assistance cordially invites you to attend the third annual Direct Loan Conference to be held March 1-3, 2000, in Washington, D.C. This conference will include sessions addressing the multi-year functionality of the Master Promissory Note, program policy updates, reconciliation, systems development, the new SFA Ombudsman, the new Return of Title IV Funds refund software, and much more.
We believe this conference will be of great interest to financial aid directors, business officers, and other staff.

There are no registration fees. However, attendees are responsible for all other expenses including meals, lodging and travel. The conference, to be held at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, will begin at 8:30 a.m., Wednesday, March 1, and end at 4:30 p.m., Friday, March 3.

Additional information concerning the conference will be posted on the www.ed.gov/DirectLoan web site as it becomes available.
As you make your travel plans, you should be aware that a number of software vendors are scheduling user meetings at the conference site on Tuesday, February 29. You may want to contact your vendor to confirm whether or not they will be offering a user meeting on that day and make your travel plans accordingly.
We hope that you will join us and your Direct Loan colleagues for another excellent conference!
