What do you get when you combine funeral directors, cemeterians, cremationists and vendors to the funeral industry in New Orleans for a convention? You get one very interesting glimpse into the workings of the death care business.
April 13-16, 2016, Gail Rubin attends the annual convention and expo of the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association (ICCFA) as a trade journalist. She’ll be scouting out interesting new developments, speaking with experts in the field and bringing you an up close and personal look at what you need to know BEFORE there’s a death in the family.
Gail will post videos on her YouTube channel of convention activities and interviews.
In addition to covering the convention and expo, Gail will visit one of New Orleans’ historic cemeteries. Look for photos of these fascinating above-ground repositories of the dead on The Family Plot Blog, Facebook and Twitter.
