President’s Message

by Myrna Gordon

Happy Spring to each of you. Last month Jeff, Steve and I had the opportunity to attend the NFDA Advocacy Summit in Washington, D.C. It was a wonderful experience and we were grateful to be a part of it. In addition to attending the Policy Board meeting, we were able to hear James Carville speak. We also had the privilege of visiting our Idaho Congressmen and expressing concerns regarding funeral service, not only in Idaho but all over the United States. We were well received and feel that our visits were very worthwhile.

I want to take this opportunity to invite each of you to the 2008 IFSA Annual Convention. It will be held in McCall at the Whitetail Resort (formerly, the Shore Lodge) on June 29, 30, and July 1st. We're looking forward to a great time, and if things go as planned, we are hoping to bring back some of the activities we all used to enjoy. There will of course be golf and we will have additional events for everyone, including kids, so bring your family. Our speakers are Bill Hoy, Grief Specialist from Texas, and Donna Anderson, State of Idaho, from Lewiston, who will present the technical aspects, touching on issues facing our profession, both present and in the near future.

Please plan to attend and I promise you will have a great time.

Make your reservations soon because the resort will only hold the room block until May 29, 2008. Call (800) 657-6464 to reserve your room.

Hope to see all of you soon, whether at your place of business or at the convention, hopefully both.

Have a great Spring!!

~ Myrna Gordon
