AUSTIN, TX – July 2018 - The International Order of the Golden Rule (OGR), the world’s leading professional association dedicated to serving independent funeral homes, is teaming up with member firm Lakeside Memorial Funeral Home, Inc. to gather some of the most driven professionals in the funeral industry together this fall. “OGR is excited to offer its young professional (YP) members the opportunity to learn new service ideas from one another and brainstorm innovative ways to meet challenges head on. The study group format allows for more collaboration, discussion, and connection, so we’re excited to organize the first ever study group, exclusively for YPs,” said Jessica Smith, Assistant Executive Director for OGR.

Members are invited to meet September 23-25 in the Buffalo area, just south of Niagara Falls, to discuss the challenges they are facing as the new generation of funeral professionals. Attendees will meet to explore ways to fulfill families’ increasingly diverse requests for services, achieve profit goals, and attract new customers.
