In cooperation with the Funeral Service Foundation
Harvard Faculty Club
Take a chance to be a part of something extraordinary – Meet the Mentors! Fifty NFDA-members who are licensed funeral professionals, age 40 or under, will be randomly selected from the pool of entries received to learn from and talk with three of the profession's leading funeral directors. Just think how much could be gained by sitting down with the stellar leaders in your profession and talking with them about their businesses.
Here's the best part... if you are one of the 50 individuals selected to attend, all you have to do is pay for your transportation to the program. That's right, all you have to do is get there; the rest is on us. Your registration fee, access to three fantastic mentors, one night of lodging, a reception and dinner the evening before the program and continental breakfast and lunch the day of the program are all included. This program is a $599 value!
Enter by midnight June 21, 2013. The names of the 50 participants will be drawn the week of June 24 from among all entries received. Each day, Monday through Friday, an NFDA staff member will draw 10 names. The drawings will be available for viewing on the NFDA website, social media sites and YouTube channel at approximately 2 p.m. CST each day.
