The Wisconsin Funeral Director Association (WFDA) announced they will be expanding their Annual Fall Conference this year to multiple locations across the state. WFDA is comprised of over 250 funeral homes and 700 funeral directors. One of the most valuable benefits of being a WFDA member is access to numerous quality continuing education programs. Funeral directors must receive a minimum of 15 continuing education credits every two years to maintain their license.
This year, the association will host its Fall Conference on September 27 at the Holiday Inn Convention Center in Stevens Point. Attendees will receive a full day of education and networking, including a presentation from the Department of Health Services, and a special visit from Wisconsin State Senator, Patrick Testin. Other sessions will include ethics, grief counseling, business succession planning, and active shooter training. WFDA holds its Fall Conference in a central location every year in hopes that it will be convenient for members to attend.
However, this year, they are taking the convenience a step further. In October, they will hold three additional forums around the state so that more funeral service professionals can pursue their continuing education credits closer to home.
“Funeral Directors’ schedules are unpredictable. They are always on call to serve Wisconsin families and WFDA wants to meet them where they are so they don’t miss out on these educational opportunities,” said WFDA Executive Director, Caroline Bowers.
Each forum will provide attendees with a minimum of six continuing education credits and the opportunity to meet local and state legislators, and government agency representatives.
Below are the dates and locations for each of the Forums:
