2022 WebED Webinar Series

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 20% of U.S. small businesses fail within the first year, and only a third have survived after 10 years. As we continue to emerge from a global pandemic, these statistics don’t begin to tell the full story on the burnout both personally and professionally that is taking a toll on our industry.

The health and wellbeing of both you and your business is one of the keys to a successful 2022. Over this seven-part series, Financial Fitness & Organizational Agility, we will cover topics ranging from your personal and business financial health to the strength of your workforce and marketing efforts.

We know that your time is at a premium, so all webinars will be available not only live, but also on-demand in our Learning Library. Please note that CE credit is only available to live attendees.

Pricing & Access

All seven webinars are being submitted for CE approval from APFSP, and our first four have already been approved. Each webinar is available for $75 a piece for members and $125 each for non-members. 

Whether you purchase a single webinar or the whole series, every employee at your funeral home will be allowed to access the webinar(s) you purchase both live and on-demand in the Learning Library so you can work your professional development around your funeral home's schedule. Please note, though, that we can only grant one CE credit per registration.
