ICCFA Next Generation Committee Creates Scholarship Fund
STERLING, VA (August 13, 2010) ? The International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association’s Next Generation Committee has created a scholarship fund for students attending ICCFA University.
“ICCFAU has always served as an incubator for developing up-and-comers within the profession,” said Next Generation Committee Co-chair Abbie Brammer Quiocho, human resources manager for Gibraltar Remembrance Services, Indianapolis, Indiana. “This committee is dedicated to fostering leadership skills among the next generation of industry leaders, and so this scholarship fund is a great fit for us as we work to fulfill that mission.”
“The ICCFA University has changed my life and the lives and careers of so many of its students and graduates,” said Co-Chair Norman Connors, a funeral director and certified celebrant at Bean Funeral Homes and Cremation Services, Shillington, Pennsylvania. “This scholarship gives us a way to give back, to give incoming students the opportunity to have that same intensive experience of learning from the best in the business and of re-dedicating themselves to providing excellent service to families.”
The ICCFA’s Next Generation Committee was created in 2009 to develop future leaders, provide relevant educational opportunities and give aspiring professionals opportunities to network and connect with each other. All ICCFA members are welcome to participate in the group’s activities.
ICCFA University is the association’s premier educational forum. The five-day program is held each year in July at the University of Memphis.
Next Generation Scholarship applications for the 2011 session of ICCFA University will be available in December 2010. The number of scholarships awarded will depend on the amount of funds received.
The fund is being administered by the ICCFA Educational Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization; donations are tax deductible. For information, contact the ICCFA at 1.800.645.7700 or visit http://www.iccfa.com/educationalfoundation.
Founded in 1887, the ICCFA is the only international trade association representing all segments of the cemetery, cremation, funeral and memorialization profession. Its membership is composed of more than 7,500 cemeteries, funeral homes, crematories, memorial designers and related businesses worldwide.
