Student Financial Services Conference Call for Presentations

Do you have a story to tell, a success to share, research to convey? The SFS conference program committee invites you to submit a proposal to present a concurrent session at the 2016 Student Financial Services Conference being held March 13-15, 2016, at The Peabody in Memphis, TN.

We are reserving several sessions for campus presentations highlighting an issue or topic of concern from which you feel the audience of bursars, student financial services directors, business officers, and others would benefit. Submissions should fall into at least one of the three topic areas: Organizational, Technical, and Interpersonal. They may come from campus administrators or members of the corporate community.

We are seeking presentations on (but not limited to) the following:

  • Collaborating for effective institutional changes across the University
  • Compliance (TIL, PCI etc.)
  • Creative/innovative Servicing Models
  • Data, Metrics and Reporting
  • Distance Education/Online Learning Issue Management
  • Effective collection techniques
  • Financial literacy
  • International issues/outreach
  • Issuing Funds to Students (i.e. Emergency Loans, Bookstore)
  • Military and veterans education
  • Perkins Loan Program
  • Effective Servicing of Students and Parents
  • Strategic Staffing/Resource Partnerships
  • Student privacy
  • Student Retention Initiatives
  • Technology/ERP Innovations

The program committee will be evaluating sessions best suited to the needs of professionals at colleges and universities. Some key considerations as you prepare your proposal:

  • Include as much detail as possible about the presentation.
  • Include 2-3 learning objectives or audience takeaways.
  • Gear the presentation towards an audience at an intermediate to advanced level of understanding. Presentations should go in depth on a particular topic, rather than providing just a basic treatment or overview.
  • Proposals will be reviewed by NACUBO members from a variety of institutions as well as NACUBO staff. They will be looking for value added to the field and the level of theoretical vs. practical application.

Guidelines for submission:

  • The deadline for submissions is October 23, 2015. Proposals may be submitted at any time until 11:59 p.m. ET on the deadline date.
  • Submission of a presentation does not guarantee participation in the program.
  • Do not submit proposals unless each speaker is available to present at any time during the program dates of March 13-15, 2016.
  • Include all presenters that will take part in the presentation. Do not list co-presenters without definite commitment that the co-presenter will be on the program. The co-presenter(s) must agree to all the terms and conditions for participation.
  • Each proposal must have at least one speaker from a college or university.
  • Acceptance notifications will be sent by December 14, 2015.
  • All selected speakers will receive an official confirmation letter. Up to two (2) speakers per session will be given complimentary registration to the conference. Speakers must complete an agreement form in order to be confirmed for a session.
  • NACUBO reserves the right to revise presentation titles or edit the session description of selected presentations for NACUBO promotional and program publications.
  • Selected presenters are responsible for paying housing and travel incurred in conjunction with participation in the 2016 Student Financial Services Conference.
