Is an Alaskan seminar in your future?



“Three Days, 12 Credits, and 1 Unforgettable Experience”.   That’s how a unique Death Care seminar is being presented.


It’s not everyday that a Death Care seminar with great speakers is held in Alaska.  As a matter of fact, this is the first one that I can recall.


Here’s some information from a press release that I received recently:

Frank B. Rosenacker, founder and CEO of Rosenacker & Associates (R&A), has announced that his firm will be conducting its first-ever continuing education seminar in Anchorage, Alaska.  The 2024 Rosenacker Continuing Education Seminar, Alaska: A Funeral Frontier, will be hosted at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Anchorage from July 21 through July 23.

“Scott Janssen, AKA – the Mushin’ Mortician, my friend and owner of Janssen Funeral Home in Anchorage, has been encouraging me for years to come hold a seminar in his city,” stated Frank Rosenacker.  “After thoughtful consideration, we decided to launch this Con Ed event to offer funeral professionals a new and different educational experience.”


According to the press release the seminar will include topics on Succession Planning, Mergers and Acquisitions, Legal Issues, Funeral Home accounting, Preneed, Artificial Intelligence, and Arlington National Cemetery.


Rosenacker and Janssen will be presenters as will, among others, industry experts such as Tukios’ Curtis Funk and the preneed industry’s Doug Hoog.

Funeral Director Daily take:  I don’t promote seminars every day.  However, it is not everyday that Frank Rosenacker and Scott Janssen lead seminars. . .and it certainly is not every day that a funeral education seminar is held in Alaska.


I go back a long way with Rosenacker and Janssen.  Frank Rosenacker and I were early advocates of preneed in Minnesota — working together in the early 1980’s even before the state offered insurance as an option.  And, Scott Janssen. . . well we got acquainted when I handled funerals for his extended family in my hometown.  Turns out that some of his relatives had relocated there and yet, we didn’t know each other until a death brought us together.


Since then, I’ve followed Scott in his adventures running the Iditarod Sled Dog Race in Alaska.  Here is information from the Funeral Director Daily archives on the last race that he ran, to my knowledge, in 2018.


Here’s a little information on Frank Rosenacker, a licensed funeral director and attorney.  And Frank, as you know, on a personal note, I continue to be grateful for and stand in awe of you and all others who have served as a member of the United States’ military service!!  Thank you for that!!
