I spent part of this week in Overland Park, Kansas for the 2013 Tri-State Funeral Convention. This was a convention cosponsored by Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska Funeral Director’s Associations.
I spoke twice at this convention:
One talk was on Cremation Liability and the second was What’s New That Can Get You Sued.
Both topics of interest to [...]
ICCFA’s annual convention was fantastic this year. The conference ran April 10–13 and was held in Tampa, Florida.
