On behalf of the 2017 WPFDA convention committee and the Board of the WPFDA, it is my pleasure to personally thank everyone for your attendance and continued support at last year’s 108th annual convention at the Ambassador Conference Center in Erie, PA. I am excited to announce our theme this year to be ”Kentucky Derby”. I am also eager to share with you our exciting lineup of educational speakers. Please check our website periodically to see our convention events develop. We plan on providing brand-new events for your entertainment.
The “Age of Enlightenment” last year was a fun and educational success. As funeral directors and funeral professionals we have a time-consuming and stressful career. I hope that this year’s convention will bring an educational and enjoyable repose for everyone. The funeral industry is ever-changing and constantly evolving however the board of the WPFDA always works hard to bring you the best speakers and newest industry leading products and ideas, to keep everyone at the forefront of funeral service.
I would like to extend a special thank you to all of our valued sponsors who support us and provide their quality products and services each year.
On behalf of the convention committee and the entire board of the WPFDA I look forward to seeing you at the 109th annual Western Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association Convention and Expo to be held June 19, 20th, and 21st at the Ambassador Conference Center in Erie, PA. Please save the date! I can personally assure you that we are committed to bring you, your family, and your staff the finest convention in the country.
Stephen J. Sherman II F.D. – President WPFDA 2017
