The FSA Training Conference will feature several sessions on the President’s Higher Education Initiatives. The traditional Town Hall general session will be replaced by three ED Open Forums held at the end of each day - Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Updated session descriptions and agenda are available at http://www.fsaconferences.ed.gov/program13.html.

Do you have questions that require a little more time than a quick visit to the Ask-a-Fed station? If so, you can schedule 30 minute one-on-one appointments, on the hour or half hour, with Ask-a-Fed representatives. Time slots are available Tuesday through Thursday from 8:30a.m. to 5:30p.m. and Friday from 8:30a.m. to 2:30p.m. Send an e-mail to AskAFed@ed.gov with two preferred date & time options and we will schedule your appointment and e-mail you a time confirmation. Appointments are available on a first-come, first served basis. If you are unable to set up a formal appointment, don't worry, there are plenty of FSA staff available to assist you throughout the day at our Ask-a-Fed station in the Resource Center.
