  • Sprintax at NAFSA 2016 Regional Conferences

    Following the national conference earlier in the year, the 11 NAFSA regions held their conferences in late October and early November. These events are excellent opportunities for those involved in international education and exchange to network with experts and business partners and stay current with the latest trends.

    Sprintax were delighted to attend again and meet many of our partners and colleagues. We were represented by Jennifer Gallagher in Alaska, Wisconsin, California and Indiana and Enda Kelleher in Rhode Island, New York, New Mexico, Louisiana and Pennsylvania.

    Enda and Jennifer had statistics from the 57,000 students and scholars who prepared their taxes with us and were glad to offer advice and information to anyone who stopped by their booths.

    This year, we continued our tradition of giving away prizes at NAFSA. Enda and Jennifer ran a draw for a Bluetooth speaker for all of those who stopped by to chat with them.

    The lucky winner from the conference in New Orleans was Joy Werka from University of West Alabama, while Kelly Hughes from Towson University got the prize at NAFSA Philadelphia. Congratulations Joy and Kelly!

  • Sprintax at NAFSA Regional Conferences

    Every year, NAFSA, the Association of International Educators, holds conferences in each state in October and November. These conferences give those involved in education the opportunity to meet, network, and stay up-to-date with the latest trends.

    This year, Sprintax were delighted to be represented by Jennifer Gallagher in Boise (Idaho), Cincinnati (Ohio), Savannah (Georgia), and Honolulu (Hawaii).

  • NAFSA Conference 2015: Paving the Way for Education

    It was a huge pleasure for Sprintax to continue our tradition of being part of the NAFSA Conference.

    More than 400 institutions, organizations, and service providers from across the globe joined the non-profit’s conference for international education this year and it was an honor for Sprintax to be a part of it.

    The annual conference, held in Boston, is a unique opportunity for organizations, educators, and companies to collaborate with skilled professionals on developing knowledge, new skills, and ideas to grow and succeed.

    Participants connected with colleagues from all around the world to swap ideas and establish partnerships with institutions and organizations.

    Sprintax Competition

    Sprintax ran a competition throughout the conference by giving away an iPod shuffle for each day of the event and an iPad Mini to one lucky winner.

    The iPad Mini went to Ann Kuhlman, Director of the Office of International Students and Scholars, Yale University. Ann was delighted when she found out, ” Well that is good news indeed. A first for me after attending dozens of NAFSA conferences.”

    The 3 daily winners of the IPod shuffles were:

    Vincent Papandrea-Vice President of Institutional Relations and New Initiatives at Vaughn College of aeronautics and technology in New York.

    Rocio Ruiz– International Student Advisor of International Student Services at the University of Arizona.

  • NAFSA Fall Adventures 2014

    How will you remember Fall 2014? For you it might be an exciting new beginning as an international student in USA, for Sprintax team Fall 2014 is all about NAFSA.

    We were more than happy to be a part of 5 of the 11 regional NAFSA conferences that took place in different US regions in late October- early November this year.

    As any other NAFSA event, the regional conferences gathered together a lot of professionals, educators and companies, dedicated to international education and eager to share ideas, goals and projects. As we at Sprintax are constantly striving to be on cutting edge of new trends in order to meet the changing needs of our clients and partners, NAFSA regional conferences were an opportunity not to be missed. We had the chance to exchange valuable experience with international education professionals from all around the world, to meet many new partners with whom we shared new ideas, discussed future business opportunities and plans.

    One thing you should know about Sprintax is that we love giving away, so we just could not miss to do this during NAFSA regional conferences. All the NAFSA attendants who stopped by Sprintax booth had the amazing chance to win an iPod Shuffle. The lucky winner whose name was pulled out the draw was Anne Kaufman – Assistant Director at USC and the prize was received by her colleague Robyn Lewis. Another iPod Shuffle was donated by Sprintax for the silent auction that was held during the Lexington conference. It was sold for $35 which will be used for funding next year conferences.

    We are thankful to all NAFSA attendants for the wonderful experience.  See you next year!
