Funeral Director Daily is heading to Baltimore

It’s been a long time since I’ve attended a National Funeral Directors Association national convention.  But, tomorrow I’m heading off to Baltimore, Maryland, for the 2022 edition of the NFDA convention.

I did not attend the NFDA Annual Convention during my funeral directing years very often.  I’ve always enjoyed the ones that I’ve went to but in my funeral directing and funeral home owner/manager days I always considered myself too busy with my local work to attend.

Now, however, as somebody who brings forth news and ideas of the death care profession I feel it is imperative to go and speak with those who are moving and shaking in the trenches of funeral service every day.  It’s important that I get that perspective so I can keep a wide view of everything happening in the profession.

And, there is a lot happening.  I’m excited about going to workshops on sustainable disposition methods, on creating meaningful cremation rituals, on ethics and where do we draw the line, on legislative issues, and on how funeral companies are growing by acquisition.  I’m also excited on learning how the profession will move forward with staff personnel as we discuss retention and recruitment strategies for staffing.

I’m excited to be going to the convention expo floor and getting to meet many of the fine sponsors who underwrite Funeral Director Daily and

allow you to receive my thoughts and ideas in your inbox, Facebook feed, or Twitter feed every weekday throughout the year free of charge.  Interestingly enough, Funeral Director Daily just started taking sponsorships during the covid pandemic so I have not met many of these fine people in person yet. . . . .I look forward to doing so.

I’m also very excited about getting to visit with my readers.  I’m hopeful that you can give me some ideas on things you would like to see Funeral Director Daily do going forward.  I’m a one-man band here. . . everything is done by me, which is why feedback from readers and sponsors is very important.

In any regards, I’m also looking forward to writing about some of the death care innovations and thoughts that I will be exposed to in Baltimore in the coming weeks for my readers.

And, if you happen to be one of those busy funeral directors taking care of your community like I was and could not attend NFDA conventions, stay tuned because I’ll be reporting back to you what I learned.

    Glad you will be attending my workshop on New Sustainable Disposition Options, Sunday at 11:30. American Crematory is now manufacturing and selling our human and pet alkaline hydrolysis 2.0 systems; as such, Fireless Cremation will not have a booth at the expo. I will be hanging out at American Crematory’s booth.

    We love your support of alkaline hydrolysis. Come and visit Resomation America at booth 207!
