Engage, Educate and Advocate by Mya Walker Lawrence

we want you

With need-based aid programs in the forefront of our state legislature, MASFAP can be a voice for the students that we serve. On April 5th, 2016, MASFAP members will gather in Jefferson City at the Capitol for MASAP’s Missouri Hill Day, where our focus will be to engage, educate and advocate!

We are currently working on scheduling that will allow us time with legislators, especially the House Higher Education Legislative Committee. The Legislative Committee is working through details, and we believe that it will benefit the Higher Education Legislative Committee to hear directly from MASFAP members about our work. Regardless of what type of institution you represent, we share common ground in the work that goes on in aid offices, and we know the positive difference for students because of state aid. We can maximize our voice with having a strong MASFAP presence. Registration is open at www.masfap.org.

In addition to registering, please email me at [email protected] if:

  • You have an existing relationship with a Missouri legislator that could be tapped into during our visit.
  • You would like to volunteer to be a group leader for one of small groups when we speak with our legislators on this day.
  • You would like to join the legislative committee.

At a conference a few years ago I heard this quote, “Be an advocate for the people and causes important to you, using the most powerful tool only you have—your personal stories.” Regardless of which sector you work, our main focus is always our students. Hill Day is a great day for us as to Engage, Educate, and Advocate an organization!

I hope to see you all in Jefferson City – looking forward to a successful visit!
