COHEAO 2021 Annual Conference, February 9-11

COHEAO is thrilled to announce the registration of our 2021 virtual annual conference, February 9, 10, 11.

For more than 40 years, COHEAO has served as the industry’s premier partnership of colleges, universities and organizations dedicated to promoting the Federal campus-based loan programs and addressing the most pressing issues in student financial services today. Driven by the demand for information and collaboration on the Perkins Loan Program, Student Financial Wellness and Student Financial Services, COHEAO provides opportunities for networking and professional development through its conferences, webinars and task forces, focusing on compliance, legislative and regulatory issues.

By advocating for the preservation and improvement of the campus-based programs and financial services best practices, our membership is dedicated to providing greater access to students with need in achieving their goal of a higher education!

Each booth at your event can contain pre-recorded or live video, branded content, Website and Twitter links, special offers, salespeople on live camera, and customized button CTAs. Vendors can also provide marketing materials and do screen sharing for live attendees. Vendors will also be able to collect and share contact information with ease for follow up and can always reach out to us as organizers for any additional information.

The cost for the expo hall is $850 and includes 1 event registration for your staff.
