Professional Development and Training


We anticipate that the Just the FACTS! program will take place in some format during the 20-21 academic year. All announcements regarding the program will be made via the MASFAA site and listserv. We appreciate your patience as the Professional Development & Training Committee Chairs work to implement the training series.


The MASFAA PD&T Committee is responsible for the training needs of MASFAA. Our members create content for all levels of professional development and find dynamic presenters for programs. We can also help MASFAA members get involved in committees as a way to assist in their professional development and support of MASFAA.

The PD&T Committee plans workshops as needed by the MASFAA community. The overall goal of our committee is to be responsive to the training needs of our colleagues. PD&T will work closely with other committees to maximize training opportunities and minimize expenses for the upcoming year. Regular events and series include Just the FACTS!, MASFAA Leadership Academy, annual tax workshops, and support staff and management workshops.

Please be aware that you must be a MASFAA member in order to participate in PD&T sponsored events. We encourage you to establish/renew your membership at


The Committee is composed of two appointed Co-Chairpersons as well as volunteer committee members.
