Subject: 2009 Federal Student Aid Conference Information
Summary: The 2009 FSA Fall Conference session list has been posted to the Web.
The training sessions for the 2009 Federal Student Aid Fall Conference have been posted at http://fsaconferences.ed.gov/program09.html.
In the coming weeks, we will post the conference schedule followed by the conference sessions in early November. In an effort to conserve natural resources, reduce waste, minimize our impact on the environment and lower conference costs, we will not be providing any session presentations at the conference. Please plan to print out the presentations of those sessions you wish to attend and bring them to the conference.
As a reminder, this year's conference will focus on the significant changes that could impact the Title IV Programs over the next year. These include the anticipated increase in schools transitioning to the Direct Loan ProgramSM, FAFSASM Simplification and the proposed new Perkins Loan Program, among others. With the expiration of the ECASLA FFEL Purchase Programs in June 2010, a primary objective of this year's conference is to ensure all schools are trained and prepared to participate in the Direct Loan Program should they want or need to do so.
We look forward to seeing you in Nashville!
