This summer, SSS by NAIS comes to Baltimore with training events designed to help school leaders make the most of their financial aid investment. Held in Baltimore's beautiful Inner Harbor at the Hyatt Regency, these three events offer distinct opportunities no matter where you are in your career.


July 24– 25

Institute for New Financial Aid Professionals

This blended learning experience features three 75-minute webinars, pre-event homework assignments, and a 1.5 day in-person workshop. Learn how to make strong financial aid decisions and finalize an award using the SSS School Portal. Build the confidence to communicate effectively with families, and the skills to ensure consistency of awards across the applicant pool. Through hands-on application, case review, and discussion, you will leave feeling well-prepared to take on the financial aid season.


July 26– 27

Advanced Topics Workshop

Join us for a blended learning experience with pre-event homework assignments, and a 1.5 day in-person workshop. It’s designed to help you make better financial aid decisions for families who are self-employed, or own a business. Gathering and reviewing the tax forms from business owners to distill what represents true “cash flow” for financial aid purposes can be daunting. You will leverage the SSS School Portal to examine tax documents for Sole Proprietorships, Partnerships, and S Corporations, apply best practice techniques through case studies, and make better final award decisions.


July 28–29

School Leaders Forum

The SSS School Leaders Forum is a blended learning experience that features pre-event homework assignments and a 1.5 day in-person workshop geared to help school leaders be more strategic about setting tuition.
