2024 NCHER Annual Conference

June 3 @ 8:00 am - June 5 @ 12:00 pm


Meet Us In Sunny Clearwater, Florida!​

NCHER will hold its Annual Conference on June 3-5, 2024 at the Hyatt Regency Clearwater in Clearwater, Florida. The conference, which is open and designed for everyone across the higher education finance industry, will provide attendees with ample opportunities to network, learn, and take information back home that they can use in their current jobs – from hearing about the current trends and hot topics to exploring new and potential business opportunities. The NCHER Program Committee and staff recently released the draft agenda, which is packed with important and engaging sessions as well as opportunities for small group discussions among industry experts. The current agenda includes:

  • A pre-conference session where first-time and veteran attendees will do a deep-dive into federal policy reviewing recent and upcoming developments at the national and state levels.
  • An update on the rollout of the 2024-2025 FAFSA [Free Application for Federal Student Aid] and what NCHER members can expect to occur over the next few months following Federal Student Aid’s continued delays in providing eligibility information to institutions of higher education.
  • General sessions built around preparing you and your colleagues for the future: topics include reviewing the changing demographics of the current student population, examining the macro trends that will determine and influence the private education loan market in 2024/2025, examining the ongoing needs of colleges and universities and the role that third-party servicers can play in the current environment, and discussing student perspectives on higher education and how to create a successful marketing strategy for your services and programs and realize a return on investment.
  • General sessions geared toward improving your operational and compliance strategies: topics include discussing the potential business and financial value of leveraging the value of artificial intelligence to improve higher education financing and reviewing the most pressing state regulatory topics impacting the membership and what steps compliance offices should be taking now to stay ahead of any potential review.
  • Small group break-out sessions centered on industry sectors so that attendees can talk about the most pressing issues of the day with their peers. It will also include an NCHER staple – our annual “Ask the Attorney’s panel.
