Candidate for Secretary

 Tarik Boyd

Statement of Candidacy

I am both humbled and honored to be nominated for the office of SASFAA Secretary. If elected, I will ensure continued, constant review of the by-laws and policies and procedures manual while suggesting changes where necessary. I will ensure accurate records of meeting minutes and ensure timely emailing of said minutes. It would be an honor and privilege to continue to serve SASFAA in this new capacity of Secretary, I believe my experiences and love for the association provides a solid foundation to be successful in the position.

My career in Financial Aid began in 2008. Like many of us, it wasn’t my plan to start a career in Financial nor is it what I studied. My start in Financial Aid was at ECPI University where I applied for an Administrative Assistance position, it wasn’t until the interview I found it was in the Financial Aid Office. In 3 short months I became a Student Finance Advisor and history was made. My time is Financial Aid has been most enjoyable and I have to say my involvement is our State, Regional, and National Associations has made my experience more enjoyable and easier to navigate with the support of my colleagues. Serving as SASFAA Secretary would allow me to show my appreciation for the association by continuing the organization and accurate records that the predecessors have set in place. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to serving SASFAA and our students.
