Member Roundtables

Join your fellow members during our two virtual roundtables and share your ideas, ask you questions, and find new approaches to common business practices. These informal discussions will allow you to connect with other members while doing a deep dive into one specific topic.

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

Open only to OGR members, these sessions are recorded and stored in our Learning Library for easy on-demand access. So, even if you can't attend live, you can still gain the benefit of these conversations. 

These discussions always result in implementable ideas and solutions you can begin to use in your funeral home immediately!

NOTE: These roundtables are an exclusive member benefit and are open to OGR members homes only.


2024 Virtual Roundtables

July 18 - 3 p.m. EST
Personalized Funerals: Your Ticket to Gaining Full-Service Clients
Facilitated by Joe E. Pray, Pray Funeral Home

It is no longer enough to provide a well-run service. Many families seek meaningful ways to commemorate their loved one's life, reflecting the essence of who they were. It falls upon you and your staff to offer tailored suggestions that meet their specific needs. Seize the opportunity, whether during the initial phone call or in-person meeting, to transform a direct cremation or burial into a full-service funeral. From Star Trek to motorcycles, share the ways you have turned an ordinary funeral into a remarkable event. Explore strategies for achieving this even with limited staff time and budget.
