WPFDA 106th Annual Convention Postlude

Ambassador Conference Center, Erie, Pennsylvania


Dear Members and Guests,

 On behalf of the 2014 WPFDA Convention Committee and the Board of WPFDA, I would like to personally thank you for your attendance and support at the 106th Annual Western Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association Convention and Expo that was held June 16-19, 2014 at the Ambassador Conference Center in Erie.

As funeral service continues to evolve and change, it is our responsibility to bring you speakers and seminars aimed at helping you to serve your families most effectively. We take this responsibility seriously. Whether it is minimizing liability or keeping up with evolving technology in funeral service, the families we serve are in our hearts and minds. Each year we strive to bring you the best products and services that allow you to give your families a meaningful and rewarding funeral experience.  The move to our larger and more modern venue continues to be a success and will allow us to continue to effectively achieve our goals for years to come!

A special thanks to our sponsors who continue to support this event, Wilbert Funeral Services, Batesville Casket Company, Matthews International, Aurora Casket Company, Columbia Financial Group, Funeral Directors Life Company, Loyal Christian Benefit Association (LCBA), Media Casket Company,  and NSS Life Pre-Need.

On behalf of the convention committee and the entire board of WPFDA I look forward to seeing you at the 107th Annual Western Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association Convention and Exposition to be held June  22-25, 2015 at the Ambassador Conference Center. Please SAVE THE DATE on your calendars. We on the board are personally committed to bringing you, your families and staff a convention that is among the finest in the country.


 Dennis D. Schmidt
