The Strategic Plan of the Midwest Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators is intended to help guide the Association as it makes decisions about resource allocations, training, advocacy, and community support activities. This Plan is built on the guiding principles laid out in the Articles of Incorporation and summarized in the Mission Statement. The Strategic Plan uses these concepts to articulate a set of goals for the Association over the next few years. It is recommended that this plan be reviewed annually and amended as needed to reflect emerging circumstances.
MASFAA GUIDING PRINCIPLES
MASFAA’s guiding principles come through four statements of purpose included in the Articles of Incorporation and are excerpted below. While our goals may change from time to time, these principles should remain as originally written.
MASFAA MISSION STATEMENT
The Mission Statement has been updated several times since the legal creation of the Association but has always reflected the vision of those aid professionals who founded MASFAA. The current Mission Statement is included below.
This Plan sets goals for the 3 main areas identified in the Mission Statement: Training and Professional Development, Advocacy, and Enhanced Communication and Coordination. This Plan also reaffirms MASFAA’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in all activities and adds goals for Association Infrastructure since those must remain strong in order for the other goals to be achieved.
