Outstanding Speaker Added to Rosenacker Alaskan Seminar

Cincinnati, OH:  — Rosenacker & Associates (R&A) has announced an additional speaker for their continuing education seminar in Anchorage, Alaska.  The newly added speaker, Ms. Brigitte C. Morgan, is the Deputy Chief of Mortuary Affairs Operation Location Pacific, Joint Base Pearl Harbor – Hickam, Hawaii.  She also serves as an interim Mortuary Director for the Yokota Mortuary, Yokota Air Base, Japan, where her responsibilities include embalming, restoration, casketing, and returning fallen service members to their families.

In 2023, Morgan participated in Operation Eldridge Glacier, a recovery mission in Denali National Park, Alaska, for the U.S. Air Force C-119 that crashed in 1952.  In 2024, she will return for Operation Colony Glacier, the recovery mission for a 1952 crash of a U.S. Air Force C-124 Globemaster II.  Her presentation at the seminar will draw on her experience with these missions.

The 2024 Rosenacker Continuing Education Seminar, Alaska: A Funeral Frontier, will be hosted at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Anchorage from July 21 through July 23.  In addition to Morgan’s lecture, attendees will benefit from presentations that cover:

  • Lessons learned while training and running the Iditarod in Alaska and how these lessons can be applied to everyday life in a funeral home
  • A panel discussion on succession planning for funeral service which will also include answers to succession planning questions
  • How to develop new and Advanced Planning Workshops that really wow families when looking into preplanning
  • How to apply artificial intelligence (AI) in daily funeral home operations, enhancing memorial services as well as harnessing AI for generating engaging content, optimizing search engine visibility, and deploying interactive chatbots
  • Informative talks on the Beaches of Normandy and Arlington National Cemetery

The seminar cost includes a Welcome reception on the opening night and a Happy Hour reception on the second night.  The seminar will feature an all-star line-up of speakers including Morgan, Frank Rosenacker, Sue Gilkey, Ann Rosenacker, Scott Janssen, Jack E. Lechner, Jr. CFSP, Kurt Rosenacker, Doug Hoog, and Curtis Funk.

A block of rooms has been negotiated at rates well below the hotel’s standard summer room rates for attendees and their guests.  As the number of rooms is limited due to capacity, attendees are encouraged to book their rooms as soon as possible. 

“Adding Brigitte Morgan and her talk really rounds out our seminar with an exceptional presentation,” commented Frank Rosenacker, founder and CEO of Rosenacker & Associates.  “In addition, I’ve been pleasantly surprised at the number of attendees who have planned additional excursions with Megan’s Amazing Adventure while in Alaska for the seminar.”

The seminar has been submitted for approval of continuing education credits – with 12 credits currently pending. For more information on the Rosenacker Continuing Education Seminar 2024, please visit www.rosenackerconed.com or call (513) 923-5230.
