This week on "Off The Cuff," the team is joined by Craig Munier, NASFAA's 2013-14 National Chair and the 2020 recipient of NASFAA's Meritorious Achievement Award. Craig, who recently retired from the Department of Education, shared his thoughts on how the profession has changed over the course of his career, and how to make the connection between the bigger picture and daily tasks in financial aid. Also in this episode, Justin speaks about what it means to be a nonpartisan organization and how and why NASFAA takes stances on public policies. Megan brings us the latest news on school reopenings and how the discussion is influencing discussions for the next coronavirus relief package on Capitol Hill, as well as the whirlwind events surrounding a rule from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that was rapidly challenged in court and repealed this week. Jill catches the group up on new guidance from ED related to professional judgment, as well as institutional reporting requirements related to CARES Act funding.
