Tune in each day during the week of January 20 as NFDA announces the participants in the Meet the Mentors Program: Presented by the Funeral Service Foundation. Ten names will be announced each day via a video that will be posted on NFDA's website and social media sites by 10 a.m. CST. The 50 funeral professionals whose names are drawn will attend Meet the Mentors, which will take place March 8-10, 2020, at the Emory Conference Center Hotel, located on the campus of Emory University, in Atlanta, Ga.

Meet the Mentors has been wholly funded by the Funeral Service Foundation since the program’s 2011 inception.
There is no cost to participate in the Meet the Mentors program itself. The Funeral Service Foundation’s generous grant provides exclusive, career-transforming access to three mentors, and covers attendees’ registration fees, two nights’ lodging and select meals (reception and dinner on March 8; breakfast, lunch and dinner on March 9; and breakfast and lunch on March 10). The 50 individuals selected to attend only pay for their transportation to the program.
Nearly 600 young professionals and emerging leaders have benefited from the Meet the Mentors program, which underscores the Foundation’s mission to support funeral service in building meaningful relationships with the families and communities it serves. The program is part of the Foundation ‘45 Awards, which are designed to transform the careers of funeral service professionals through scholarships, awards, resources and mission-focused outreach.
