- Lenders can go onto the HESC website to see credit checks. Students can also call

Jennifer Trauman presented strategies for helping undergraduates prepare for Graduate
School. The presentation is attached.
Maria Deinnocentiis talked about the Next Generation Committee and how they were
trying to reach out to new and old people for the purpose of getting involved with
NYSFAAA. Volunteers are needed for various positions and committees.
Volunteers are especially needed for the Election Committee
The Legislative Workshop will take place on March 3rd or 4th.
A Support Staff Work Shop is coming up.
Donations can be given to the Development Fund – think of NYSFAAA as an
organization to give to.
Heather McDonald and Curt Guame were special guests at the meeting.
The following points were mentioned:
- Heather congratulated Region VI members on a wonderful conference they hosted in
October.
- First draft of Slate should be available by March 1st.
- Heather and Curt have the same vision for NYSFAAA and Slate and want to know what
we need them to do for us.
- They both feel that Slate was written too quickly/language.
- NYSFAAA members will have to navigate a little differently and a lot of what’s going
on is about perception
- CUNY & SUNY have been subjected already
- Training will take place once the Slate document is sent out
Upcoming Projects:
Novice – 1st full week of June in Suny Brockport. Lisa Simpson is the contact person for
Novice.
Legislative Forum – postponed to March because of the primaries
Region 3 Syracuse hosting next year’s conference in Buffalo.
Next 10-15 years we’ll be spending a lot of time in Buffalo and NYC – hotels can’t
accommodate us.
We need a great slate of individuals who will take this organization forward!
Brian Ghanoo presented How to Calculate the EFC – Expected Family Contribution
He walked attendees through several calculations
Mary V. Torres-Erickson made a brief presentation on College Goal Sunday. Requests
were made for extra assistance for the Bronx to accommodate the 300+ students who are
registered and also made a plug for Yonkers. A plea for Chinese speaking volunteers was
made for our Flushing location.
Anna Kopit gave the closing remarks and asked everyone to save February 19th for the
