Virtual Roundtables

Join us for our annual Roundtables series to share your best practices, ideas and questions centered around a common challenge facing funeral service today. These informal discussions are an opportunity to connect with other members, share your expertise and learn from their experiences.

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."
--African proverb

Not sure if you'll be able to make it to a session you're interested in? Send your questions ahead of time to Nancy Weil at [email protected] and she can ask them on your behalf. Every session will be recorded so you can watch the video afterward to get your answers as your schedule allows.

NOTE: These roundtables are an exclusive member benefit - they are free to attend for all OGR members, and only members can register.

You have ideas, your fellow members have ideas…let’s share them and find new ways to set your funeral home apart.
