Have you been looking for a way to get more involved in Student Assistance? Do you see great things happening in SAP in your region that you would like to share with the rest of the Commonwealth? Do you see pockets of need and want to be part of team that problem solves and advocates for professional development, education and change? Or, do you work with another student assistance professional that you believe would be a good addition to the PASAP Board of Directors?
If so, please consider running or nominating someone to run for a position on the Board. The only prerequisite is to be an active member of PASAP, be SAP trained and able to volunteer your time to support the mission of Student Assistance.
