Austin, Texas, the Live Music Capital of the World® and the location for OGR’s home office, will play host to OGR’s Fall Forum October 18-19, 2013. Attend the Fall Forum for educational sessions and networking, access to NFDA events, and exposure to the music, history, and food that make up Austin. Austin consistently ranks as one of America’s best cities to visit according to national publications such as US News and World Report, and Forbes, so this will be a conference you won’t want to miss!

Educational topics to be covered will include engaging families through celebrants, pre-need marketing and profitability, and cremation profitability. Registration for the Forum will open in mid-June, so visit http://www.ogr.org/fall-forum periodically for updates.
