Important Message 

As we reflect on the unfortunate and painful recent events surrounding the death of Mr. George Floyd, the NJASFAA Executive Council takes a parallel position in affirming both our overall and diversity and inclusion mission statements.  Our overarching mission of assisting students and families to obtain access to higher education goes hand-in-hand with our commitment to embrace and celebrate diversity and inclusion.  We do so with a firm dedication that actively uplifts members, students and families from all backgrounds while equally condemning racism, bias activity, inequality and any actions that might stand to test our position as a service organization. We look forward to further strengthening and expanding our partnership with you - our valued membership, colleagues and friends.

 A Note from Your President, Asia Taj:

Hello NJASFAA Friends and Colleagues,

It is my honor to serve as 2020-2021 NJASFAA President. This is certainly an unprecedented year for NJASFAA as our members and institutions are facing numerous operational challenges and dealing with new regulations due to the pandemic. As we adapt to the new normal, NJASFAA remains committed to providing you guidance and support with robust professional development and networking opportunities through training events, Fall Forum, GRC Symposium, Annual Spring Conference, Novice Training, and listserv.

NJASFAA exists because of our volunteers who dedicate their valuable time to the Association. Our 2019-2022 Strategic Plan has the goal of engaging new volunteers who not only actively participate in the committees but also serve as elected officers of the Executive Council. I have enjoyed my time volunteering with NJASFAA and found it extremely rewarding - and I hope you will too. We need you, and I encourage and personally invite you to consider getting involved by completing the volunteer preferences form.

With training programs and continued advocacy, NJASFAA strives to assist our students and families obtain access to higher education. I sincerely thank the Executive Council and all members - who are engaged in the association’s activities - for their time, hard work, and dedication to achieve this objective. I truly appreciate your efforts and contribution, and I look forward to working with all of you to make a positive impact!
