You’ve spoken and we’ve heard. This year, OGR will be bringing four Regional Workshops your way. These education sessions will provide 4-5 hours of CE credit (in states where approved), a light lunch, and lots of hands-on takeaways. See below for all the details. Contact the Education Department at email@example.com with any questions.
9:00 – 10:00 AM Registration / Coffee
10:00 AM – Noon Transforming the Arrangement Conference, Karl Jennings
Learn to provide grieving families with the most meaningful funeral service options possible during the arrangement conference and move from being a simple order-taker to a practitioner and family collaborator. In this session, we’ll cover the dynamics of the arrangement conference, the theory of economic progression as it applies to funeral service, and how to interact with three types of grieving customers.
Noon – 1:00 PM Catered lunch (included in the cost of registration)
