It's Not Too Late: Register TODAY for the Professional Women's Conference

To support the growing number of women in funeral service, NFDA is bringing together funeral directors, vendors, educators, students and highly respected presenters at its 2011 Professional Women's Conference, April 1-3 at Hotel Monaco in Alexandria, Va.


Incorporating a unique format that fosters long-lasting friendships and generates a wealth of new ideas, this year's NFDA Professional Women's Conference leads off with "Who Killed the Funeral?" Presented by Jacquelyn Taylor, CFSP, executive director of the New England Institute at Mount Ida College, this eye-opening seminar will address mounting evidence that mainstream deathcare providers are in danger of becoming irrelevant in the 21st century and provide attendees with novel solutions to take control of their destiny. In addition to the popular roundtable discussions, attendees can look forward to additional conference sessions about embalming litigation and creating a personal and professional legacy.

NFDA's room block for Hotel Monaco is sold out. According to, good room rates may be available at the Sheraton Suites Old Town Alexandria, six blocks from Hotel Monaco.

Additional conference information can be found by visiting or calling 800-228-6332. Even though the March 11 registration deadline has passed, NFDA will still accept registrations.
