The deadline for applying for a scholarship from the Funeral Service Foundation to attend the Professional Women’s Conference in Canada is September 16. Taking place November 16-18 at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto, Ontario, this intimate gathering will be the perfect setting for you to generate new ideas, grow personally and professionally, and create lasting relationships with other funeral professionals.
NFDA is partnering with the Funeral Service Association of Canada to offer a second Professional Women’s Conference in 2018. You can expect engaging conference sessions led by experts covering a wide range of topics including children and grief, living funerals, digital marketing, technical skills, diversity in the workplace and much more. Complete details about speakers and education sessions that will be featured during the Professional Women’s Conference can be found on the NFDA website, www.nfda.org/pwccanada.
Kick off your Professional Women’s Conference experience by participating in the NFDA Arranger Training program on November 16. Lacy Robinson, CFSP, NFDA director of member development, will help you learn how to make the most of arrangement conferences through a creative, five-step process you will only discover during the NFDA Arranger Training workshop. NFDA and FSAC members can save $100 (USD) on the Arranger Training registration fee when they also register for the Professional Women’s Conference.
