The Coalition of Higher Education Assistance Organizations (COHEAO) will be hosting our 2018 Annual Conference January 28-January 31 at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City, located next to Washington, D.C. 

The COHEAO Annual Conference is the must-attend event for student financial services administrators on campus and their vendor partners, particularly those with an interest in the happenings of Washington and its impact on our business. Previous Congressional speakers include Sen. Tammy Baldwin (WI), Rep. Luke Messer (IN), Rep. Mark Pocan (WI), Subcommittee on Higher Education and Lifelong Learning Chair Virginia Foxx (NC), Rep. Tim Bishop (NY), among others!

This conference is also a critical advocacy event for the Perkins Loan Program and other student financial services issues on campus, such as reforms to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.  The conference includes a half-day for attendees to visit with their legislators and their staff on Capitol Hill.  If you are new to Congressional advocacy, COHEAO will be able to pair you up with more experienced advocates.

Conference fees have remained the same as they were for our 2017 Annual Conference.  If your school is an institutional member of COHEAO, the rate is $570 prior to the deadline of January 8 and $620 after that date. The rate for non-member schools is $670 prior to January 8 and $720 after that date. The COHEAO commercial member rate is $640 prior to January 8 and $690 after that date. Servicers and agencies that are not members of COHEAO should contact Greg Marak ( regarding registration fees. Please contact Greg Marak ( with any questions regarding joining COHEAO.

The Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City, our conference hotel, is a short Metro or cab ride to Washington, DC and from Reagan National Airport.  COHEAO has negotiated a special room rate of $235 per conference delegate, which is an outstanding rate in the DC area for any conference hotel.  Space is limited.
