NASFAA 2013 #FACHAT Tweetup Invitation

by Liz Gross (@lizgross144)
In just two weeks thousands of financial aid professionals will be gathering in Las Vegas for the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators 2013 conference. In case you haven’t checked the weather, we’re in for 100+ degree days. But don’t worry - #FACHAT will keep you cool with two, yes TWO tweetups.

What is a tweetup?
A tweetup is an opportunity for folks who have been tweeting with each other (say, using the #fachat or #NASFAA2013 hashtag) to meet in person. It’s one way to guarantee you’ll see a familiar face among the crowd of conference attendees. There’s no formal agenda, just chat like you would normally…you just don’t need to wear out your thumbs. Afterwards, you’ll have gotten to know some excellent colleagues just a little bit better. You may even end up collaborating on something for next year’s NASFAA conference because of the connections you made!
Tweetup Dates & Locations
We’re sure you want to see a bit of Las Vegas, so we’re not going to add another event to your schedule on top of the already packed conference. We’ll meet up in conjunction with the Sunday and Monday night networking receptions. You can come to just one meetup, or double up and attend both.
  • Tweetup #1:
    • Sunday, July 14 at 6:00 p.m.
    • Meet in the exhibit hall at a table behind the Department of Education’s booth.
  • Tweetup #2:
    • Monday, July 15 at 5:00 p.m.
    • Meet in the exhibit hall at a table behind the Department of Education’s booth.
Please RSVP
Justin, Karla and Liz will be saving table space for us and marking them with super cool #FACHAT & Twitter bird tabletents. To help us know how many places to save, please RSVP using this Google form.
