NFDA looks forward to welcoming the funeral profession’s state and national leaders – as well as the future leaders of the profession – to the 2021 Leadership Conference, taking place August 1-4 at the Belmond Charleston Place in Charleston, South Carolina.
In addition to hearing from top-notch experts, there are plenty of opportunities to relax and network with colleagues!
Kick off your Leadership Conference experience by hitting the links at Wild Dunes Harbor Course on August 1s. Designed by Tom Fazio, the Harbor Golf Course is known for its challenging design, beautiful views, and, most of all, spectacular water features. From lagoons and salt marshes to the Intracoastal Waterway, this varied golf course will test all aspects of a player’s game (optional event; registration required).
Also on August 1, you’re invited to reconnect with old friends and making new ones during the complimentary Welcome Reception. While you’re there, be sure to say hello to the National Emerging Leaders Program participants who are beginning their year-long journey during the Leadership Conference.
On the evening of August 3, join in A Night of Trivia and Comedy brought to you by Atlantic Coast Life and NFDA. While enjoying hors d'oeuvres, dinner and a hosted bar, guests will be entertained by comedian James Gregory, who has been tickling people’s funny bones for more than thirty years. Born in the rural South, his unique brand of humor packs the crowds into his sold-out shows (optional event; registration required).
After attending education sessions in the morning, Leadership Conference attendees have the afternoon off to relax, network and enjoy the classic southern charm of Charleston. Whether they are interested in tasting delectable southern cuisine, experiencing the city’s rich history, indulging in shopping, or experiencing off-the-beaten-path finds, attendees will find something to occupy their afternoons. The concierge at Belmond Charleston Place can suggest and coordinate unique excursions for attendees. For those who want to plan their own adventures, The Charleston Convention & Visitors Bureau, www.charlestoncvb.com, is an excellent source of inspiration.
