State and national funeral service associations are fortunate to have dedicated volunteers and leaders serving on boards, committees and work groups. Funeral professionals who want to enhance their leadership skills to make a positive difference in their associations and the profession should attend the 2017 NFDA Leadership Conference, which will take place July 16-19 at the spectacular Coeur d'Alene Resort in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. In addition to valuable educational programs, attendees will have plenty of time to explore everything the Coeur d’Alene Resort offers. With so much to see and do, this one-of-a kind venue is a perfect place for attendees to relax and reconnect with family and friends. There’s something for everyone to do in the “Playground of the Northwest”: kayaking, whitewater rafting, lake cruises, swimming, relaxing spa services, premium shopping, hiking, fabulous dining, and much more. The early-bird registration (save up to $100) and hotel reservation deadline is June 16. Visit www.nfda.org/leadership to learn more about the conference and make your plans to attend.
