Hello Ohio Cemetery Association!

Aug 14, 2012 | 1 comment

Looking forwarding to speaking today at the Ohio Cemetery Association annual convention here in Columbus! My talk is titled “Grave Expectations: Trends in the Cemetery Trade.”

A few topics I’m talking about:

QR codes on memorial markers in cemeteries

Cremation rates, the economy and the change in burial rates

The impact of baby boomers reaching retirement and death

Growing interest in green burial

Certified Celebrants: what they do and what Celebrant services look like

Community outreach ideas including Create a Great Funeral Day (October 30), Halloween pumpkin hunts/decorating contests, funny films for funeral planning and The Newly-Dead Game™ as a way to encourage pre-need planning

YouTube video to come!
A Good Goodbye
