Invitationals bring unique camaraderie to member-hosted special interest events

What better way to share personal interests than among your OGR friends and colleagues? OGR's member-hosted Invitationals offer a unique opportunity for members to spend time together at small group outings and informal discussions - and earn CEUs in the process.

These programs have ranged from pheasant hunts, speed racing and fly fishing, to Canadian roundtables and trips to Italy. For information about hosting an invitational, contact the Education Department or call (800) 637-8030.

Study Groups

OGR study groups bring small groups of funeral professionals together for ongoing study of successful practices. They meet periodically throughout the year at participants’ funeral homes to explore ways to fulfill families’ increasingly diverse requests for services, achieve profit goals, and attract new customers.  Using a combination of discussion methods, internal and external expertise, and industry data, they work towards a list of achievable actions to try at our funeral homes.
