On March 29, 1967 a group of college financial aid administrators and other interested parties met in Louisville, Kentucky. The meeting was a result of discussion by the Kentucky delegates at the February 1967 meeting of SASFAA. The need to establish a Kentucky organization of financial aid administrators was recognized and the twenty-seven people meeting in Louisville were determined to form such an organization.
Barry Dixon, Centre College, was appointed temporary chairman and charged with forming a committee in order to draft recommendations and by-laws for the new organization. Mr. Dixon selected Charles Dya, University of Louisville, James Ingle, University of Kentucky and Ruth Eberling, Catherine Spalding College as committee members.
The Acting Committee developed a Proposed Constitution of the Kentucky Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators. A meeting was called for May 29, 1967 at Catherine Spalding College, Louisville, Kentucky, to review the proposed constitution and make further decisions concerning the future of KASFAA. A letter to state aid administrators was sent out in November 1967 inviting individuals to join KASFAA, membership dues were $4.00 per year.
Members of the group represented Kentucky at the 1968 SASFAA Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina. Additional meetings were held during early 1968 resulting in nominations for the 1968-69 Executive Committee, with elections held in May 1968.
The May 1968 business meeting showed the total membership at 24 with the Treasurers Report listing a balance of $112.80.
