OGR Virtual Roundtables return in 2021

OGR is hosting a series of roundtable discussions to provide a networking platform for members to share their best practices, ideas and questions around common challenges facing funeral service today. These informal discussions will be your opportunity to connect with other members, share your expertise and learn from their experiences.

The roundtable series is available exclusively to OGR members, free of charge. All meetings will be held on Zoom with a start time of 4 p.m. ET and will last 45 minutes.

Members and their staff wishing to participate must pre-register. Registered participants will be emailed a Zoom link a few days prior to the digital roundtable. For security reasons, we cannot admit individuals who are not pre-registered.
