Please join the NAFIS Family as we gather for the 2020 NAFIS Spring Conference, Making an Impact! 

The conference theme recognizes the successful impact the NAFIS Family’s advocacy has had on increasing funding for the Impact Aid program, highlighting our infrastructure needs and blocking Impact Aid vouchers.  Additionally, the theme recognizes the impact NAFIS members have on our programming, helping to inform session topics and speakers.  And of course, it pays homage to what education professionals do every day: impact the lives of the students, families and communities we serve.

The Spring Conference comes at a critical time, allowing attendees to engage in important advocacy work. Attendees will be on the Hill thanking members of Congress for recent increases in funding for Impact Aid as well as urging continued support for the program in the future.  Appropriations committees will be gearing up for FY 21, and Dear Colleague letters will be circulating on the hill.  NAFIS attendees will ask policymakers to demonstrate their support for Impact Aid by adding their signature to these letters. We will also focus our advocacy work on infrastructure, supporting efforts to include Impact Aid construction in an infrastructure package.

The conference will feature high-profile speakers, the latest updates on Impact Aid, timely breakout sessions and the chance to connect with – and learn from – other members of the NAFIS Family. You will also have the opportunity to meet with U.S. Department of Education staff to ask questions specific to your district’s application and funding.

Remember to share your school spirit—Sunday is “School Pride Day,” and we encourage you to wear your school shirts, colors, logos, and other gear to “show off” your school district!

I look forward to engaging, learning and advocating for Impact Aid with you.  Collectively, our voices have and will continue to Make an Impact.
