Don’t Miss Out – Explore Nashville (and Have Fun!) While Networking with Colleagues
You're going to meet more funeral directors at the NFDA International Convention & Expo – October 12-15 in Nashville, Tenn. – than any other convention in this profession. NFDA has plenty of social and networking events and tours to help you reconnect with old friends and make new ones, all while enjoying Nashville's friendly atmosphere. You won't want to miss out on the Welcome Party at the famous Wild Horse Saloon, which is located in the heart of Nashville's honky tonks. Stay for the closing celebration on Wednesday evening, A Hall of Fame Evening: Celebrate with the Stars. Read more.

Preneed Planners – Add CPC to Your Credentials to Set Yourself Apart!
Invest in your future with the NFDA Certified Preplanning Consultant (CPC) designation! Since 1996 CPC has been the national standard of excellence for advance funeral planning. Earning your designation shows professional commitment, increases consumer confidence, and promotes the value of preplanning to the public. Make plans to join your colleagues October 29-30 in Erie, Penn. The application deadline for this seminar has been extended to October 3.
Tell Us About Your Experiences With the VA
Posted: September 19, 2014
NFDA will testify before the House Veterans Affairs Committee in November regarding funeral directors' experiences with the Department of Veterans Affairs and VA cemeteries. In preparation for that hearing, we are asking each NFDA member to complete a survey. The information we gain from the survey will be a critical component of our testimony on behalf of you and the veterans' families you serve. The information can also help the Department of Veterans Affairs – particularly the Veterans Benefits Administration and the National Cemetery Administration – improve their service to funeral directors. Please complete the survey by October 1 so that the data can be incorporated into NFDA's testimony. Click here to take the survey: https://www.research.net/s/2014_VA_Payment_Issues
