Welcome to OASIS



Please see the attached information for sponsorship for our upcoming state conference.  We expect about 100 participants this year and are expanding our agenda to include a Meet and Greet on Tuesday evening, November 27th, from 6:00 - 8:00.  The easiest way to do that would be to ask sponsors to divide the check at the end of the evening, so the amount will depend on the number of sponsors.  This is our first time to do this, so I really have no idea of the cost so include a $ limit and we'll go to cash bar when we reach the limit of the combined sponsors (if that's too confusing, just call me).

In addition or instead of the Meet and Greet, we also appreciate sponsorships for meals, door prizes, and this year are offering to put your business logo on conference materials or the program.  We appreciate any and all help you can provide!

The set up for vendor tables is much better at River Spirit and will be right outside the meeting rooms.

If you have any questions or need additional information, just email or call my cell.

Thank you!

NAFIS Conference

Learn more and register
reserve your room at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill.

The conference theme acknowledges recent challenges to Impact Aid and reminds us of the need for the NAFIS Family to be unified and work collaboratively to support all federally impacted school districts and the children they educate.

Coming at the end of the federal government’s fiscal year, the conference provides the opportunity to remind your representatives how important Impact Aid is to your district and students and to request they fund it appropriately. You’ll also get up-to-the-minute projections on the mid-term elections, the chance to meet one-on-one with U.S. Department of Education staff, access to breakout sessions on pressing issues and time to connect with other members of the NAFIS Family.
OASIS will schedule Hill visits with legislators for the Oklahoma delegation on Tuesday, Sept. 25, during the NAFIS conference.   We need you there with us!
