Attending the NAFIS Fall Conference was invaluable to me and to other OASIS members who had the opportunity to learn and share with Impact Aid recipients from across the country, visit one-on-one with USDE Impact Aid analysts, spend a day on Capitol Hill visiting the offices of Oklahoma legislators, and learn more about the valuable work of NAFIS, FLISA, NIISA and other organizations advocating for continued and fair funding of Impact Aid school districts.
We are very proud that Oklahoma's State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister will be the luncheon speaker and that OASIS Consultant Steven Crawford will be attending the Spring NAFIS Conference with the Oklahoma delegation! There will be a break-out session for Oklahoma attendees within the conference and I will be scheduling visits to the hill, so please let me know if you will be attending.

NAFIS Spring Conference
Strategy for Success: Unite - Focus - Engage
March 18-20, 2018
Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill in Washington, DC
Links to register for the conference are now up. It is an easy, two-step process: 1) reserving a hotel space; and 2) registering for the conference. You can also see a tentative agenda as well.
The keynote speaker at our First General Session will be Julie Evans, CEO of Project Tomorrow dedicated to ensuring that today's students are well prepared to be tomorrow's innovators, leaders and engaged citizens. Our Monday luncheon will feature an address from the Honorable Joy Hofmeister, the Oklahoma State Superintendent.
We will continue to offer the popular sessions you've come to count on - like the Basic of Impact Aid, the Conference Orientation and more. But NAFIS tries to balance work and fun. This year's Ending Reception theme is March Madness, so wear your favorite basketball team jersey.
