ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. – The sixth annual Funeral Service Business Plan conference, held by Kates-Boylston Publications, will be Nov. 3 and Nov. 4 at the Don CeSar Beach Resort in St. Petersburg, Fla.

The Funeral Service Business Plan conference, which qualifies for continuing education credits in most states, brings together some of the top operators and thinkers in funeral service. Be sure to keep these dates open so you can learn profit-building strategies that you can apply as soon as you return home.

“Every year, our Business Plan conference keeps getting better and better,” said conference moderator Thomas A. Parmalee. “Word of mouth brings new attendees eager to learn and network, and I’m happy to say that we also have many repeat attendees who value the one-of-a-kind experience.”

This year’s conference will include a tour and reception at Anderson-McQueen’s Cremation Tribute Center the evening of Nov. 2. The firm’s owner, John McQueen, expects the alkaline hydrolysis machine at this location to be operational by the November conference, so attendees will see the machine firsthand – as long as all goes as planned – along with the other great service offerings at the tribute center.

Business Plan Conference Covers Key Topics

The Business Plan conference will cover key topics, including boosting your preneed program, building profit-winning teams, social networking and marketing, catering to cremation families and much more.

Past attendees have given the conference great reviews. Here is a sampling of what they have to say:

“From time-tested business principles to innovative concepts for the future, this forum had something for everyone,” said Don Smith, president of Smith’s Funeral Homes in Canada and an attendee of the Business Forum.

“(I enjoyed) the opportunity to interact with funeral industry professionals that gave our firm different concepts other than our norm,” said Joseph Russo, president of Russo Funeral Service.

“It was very hard to quantify (which presentation) was the best,” said Adam Martin, president of the Martin Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Michigan. “The entire conference is outstanding and will easily give you a year’s worth of ideas and projects to get you through to the next conference.”

“The presenters were astounding,” said Tyrone P. Dixon, owner of Jones Joseph R. Funeral Home in Chicago. “They provided lots of useful information.”

“Congratulations on putting together another ‘must attend’ conference for our profession,” said Mark Smith, owner of McAlister-Smith Funeral Homes in Charleston, S.C. He added, “Current and relevant content was presented in a way for attendees to bring home and easily implement to ensure continued success.”
