OGR’s 2021 Leadership Summit is an opportunity to reunite with your colleagues and friends for the first time in over a year while delving into topics that focus on leadership and innovation. The schedule will allow ample time for networking and idea-sharing amongst peers.

Register using the links below and be sure to reserve your hotel room by August 26!


Continuing Education

APSFP has approved all of the professional development we're offering at this year's summit, meaning you can earn 7.5 CEs by joining us in-person. Check our CEs tracker page to see if your state has approved the hours. Keep in mind that approvals are still coming in. If you don't see approval listed for your state, contact OGR's Education Department to confirm your state's approval status.

Hotel Reservations

Our host site this year will be the Hotel Carmichael in Carmel, Indiana, a suburb on the north side of Indianapolis. We have negotiated a special room rate of just $189 per night for any standard King or two-Queen room. The event runs Sunday, Sept. 19- Tuesday, Sept. 21. The room rate will be honored as long as you book by Aug. 19.


This unique event offers an unprecedented opportunity to maximize your valuable time through access to our members for the entire Summit. You won’t be roped off in a separate room waiting for attendees to come visit your booth - suppliers will have full access to the entire conference.

Become a Sponsor

Want to engage with a focused group of members who are owners or otherwise established in the funeral profession and looking to take their career to the next level (also known as the decision makers at the funeral homes you're trying to reach)? We have sponsorship opportunities at four different price levels to suit your budget. Want to customize your own sponsorship package? Reach out to Executive Director Wendy King.

Silent Auction

The OGR Foundation's annual silent auction will be held in conjunction with the Leadership Summit this year. Attendees will be able to see the items available and make their bids at the summit. Any OGR member who doesn't attend will still be able to participate by bidding online.

All money raised from the auction benefits the OGR Foundation, which provides scholarships every year for deserving mortuary students. Have something you want to donate to help the cause? As a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization, all donations are tax deductible. To donate an item for auction, contact Executive Director Wendy King at [email protected] or (800) 637-8030, ext. 140.

Health & Safety

OGR holds the safety of attendees, vendors and staff at the Leadership Summit as our top priority. We've outlined the measures put in place by OGR and hotel staff to make sure you have a safe and memorable conference experience.
