Inaugural Leadership Summit will mark OGR's return to in-person events

OGR members will gather in-person for the first time in more than a year this September for the association's inaugural Leadership Summit.

After being flooded with work that forced owners of even our largest members to work "in" their business, this represents an opportunity to work "on" their business with face-to-face networking opportunities with members of OGR's Supplier Network as well as fellow funeral home owners and leadership.

Hotel Carmichael ballroomEducation at the Summit will focus on leadership-centered professional development, with sessions like:

  • Moving from Panic to Purpose (keynote address);
  • The Changing Consumer: Marketing Trends, Opportunities and Threats;
  • The Innovation Challenge: Shaping the Future for Independent Funeral Homes; and
  • From Ideation to Innovation: How OGR Members can Rethink the Funeral Profession (featuring panelists Evan J. Strong, OGR President; Andy Clayton, Indiana Funeral Directors Association; and Brent Baird, Matthews Aurora™ Funeral Solutions).

“We are excited to offer funeral professionals a chance to focus on professional development away from the day-to-day pressures of the funeral home, while also reconnecting with old friends and colleagues, and making new friends,” said Wendy King, OGR’s executive director.

The Summit will be held at the Hotel Carmichael in Carmel, Indiana, September 19 - 21. OGR members and non-members alike are welcome to attend, but members get a discount on registration fees.

Registration is open at Have questions? Feel free to reach out to me at [email protected] or Meetings & Membership Coordinator Alyssa Castille at [email protected]. Companies interested in sponsorship opportunities or attending as a supplier can contact Wendy King at [email protected].
