Communications Committee

Purpose

The purpose of the Communications Committee is to create, collect, disseminate, and archive information that is important to the MASFAA members. The committee strives to acknowledge the contributions of MASFAA volunteers and increase recognition and awareness of the financial aid profession among non-financial aid professionals of the higher education community.

Composition

The committee consists of tri-chairs appointed by the President. The committee works within a liaison structure, where each of the other MASFAA Committees will designate one member as the Communications Committee Liaison. This representative will be responsible for relaying information to the tri-chairs for dissemination or archiving. The Committee may also have other volunteer members from the Association.
