Dear GFSPA Member,
On behalf of the Education and Research Committee, we invite you to the 2018 Mid Year Leadership Conference, that will be held Tuesday, October 9, 2018 at the Lake Blackshear Resort and Golf Club, Cordele, Georgia. The Education Committee along with President Jeffery Wakefield and Convention Chairperson David Batts have planned a wonderful Mid Year Leadership Convention. We look forward to your presence as we plan the success of GFSPA while having the opportunity to provide engaging, thoughtful, and developmental continuing-education programs.
We will provide 3 hours of CEUs at the Mid Year Conference. CEU topics are as followed:
What is Your Role in Shaping the Future of GFSPA
In an age when it is more and more challenging to manage all of the information and demands people face, it takes a courageous leader to stand firm in what they believe, help their fellow colleagues understand what matters and to execute plans effectively. As key stakeholders in the future of funeral service, conference attendees will have an opportunity to discuss two primary issues in the evaluation of GFSPA’s structure: Roles and Responsibilities of Officers (Determining what your roles as an officer is, and to help you convey that role to the members of the group) and Constitution and By-Laws/ Procedural Manual (Understanding the newly updated and adopted policies and procedures manual for GFSPA).
If you have not attended the Mid Year Conference recently please do so; receive all that GFSPA has to offer. Registration is only $60. Our goal is to facilitate the kind of conference that will ensure that you obtain the skills, knowledge and contacts you need to further your professional and personal growth.
We appreciate your support and we look forward to working with you. Please encourage all of your officers, committee chairpersons/members, and GFSPA members to participate. We are also looking to encourage individuals who would like to become an officer to come and support the Mid Year Conference.
