NFDA Seeks Presenters for 2023 International Convention & Expo

Brookfield, Wis. – The National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) asks funeral service professionals interested in presenting an education session during its 2023 International Convention & Expo to submit proposals by January 2. The 2023 NFDA Convention will take place September 10-13, 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“NFDA prides itself on offering the best education in the funeral service profession. We are looking for proposals from professionals who are not afraid to push the envelope and whose successes – and lessons learned – can help funeral service professionals build thriving businesses,” said Director of Education Carmella Hansen. “We highly encourage new voices – those who may not have presented on the national stage before – and presenters representing fresh perspectives to submit an education session proposal.”

Proposals can be for one- or two-hour education sessions and should fall into at least one of eight topical areas: business management and operations; cremation; customer service; grief and bereavement; compliance and legal; technical skills; technology; preneed; or professional development. Session proposals should be thought-provoking and offer innovative and practical ideas that have tangible takeaways for attendees.

Complete details, including information about submitting a proposal and what the Convention Education Task Force looks for when reviewing proposals, can be found on the NFDA website,

All proposals must be submitted online by 5 p.m. CT on January 2, 2023. All proposers will be notified whether they have been selected as a speaker via email by March 1, 2023.
