The Fall 2019 WVASFAA Conference was held at Glade Springs Resort from October 23rd to the 25th. Our conference theme of “Turn on the Light” was found throughout the sessions as the conference attendees were enlightened. WVASFAA President Lake Tackett’s theme embodied the atmosphere of the conference. Conference sessions included NASFAA Core opportunities, federal and state updates, NASFAA’s Around the Beltway, and many more. The Conference special guests included Concord University's President, Dr. Kendra Boggess and U.S. Department of Education Training Officer Craig Rorie. WVASFAA would like to thank Dr. Boggess for her encouraging words and gratitude expressed for all that our members do as part of our daily lives in higher education. WVASFAA would also like to thank Craig Rorie for his dedication to our organization and patience with our questions over the years. WVASFAA wishes him the best of luck in his retirement. Past President, Consuela Phillips presented Carla Strawn (PNC Bank) with the MASFAA State Leadership Award. WVASFAA will be hosting our Spring Conference in Bridgeport, WV from April 21st to 23rd. 

Thank you!

President talks

  Lake Tackett


These wise words from Professor Dumbledore to Harry Potter, courtesy of J.K. Rowling, have kind of evolved into my personal mantra – and now the theme of my 2019-20 WVASFAA Presidency. 

 In these all too often dark and divisive times, my hope is that we can use this year to shine some light – on not just our profession, but also our schools, our associate and business partners,  and last but not least, ourselves and the importance of what we all do every day.

Please take the time to dig in to our new and improved WVASFAA website to learn not just about where we are today, and the professional, timely, and hopefully fun, events and conferences we are planning, but also about our organization’s membership and history.

WVASFAA has been an active voice for our profession and our students for more than 50 years and my goal is that everyonefeels encouraged to be involved and participate as we move forward into 2020.

We work best when we work together!
