This is going to be a great Annual Membership Meeting for the state of Arizona! Our three affiliates have merged, and this is a meeting everyone can attend. We are streaming our meeting to Prescott and the Phoenix area. The main meeting will be in Tucson where we have our largest concentration of members, but members throughout the state will be able to see, hear, and participate through the use of technology.
Mr. Josh Slocum will be speaking on “Something Old, Something New: Modern Funerals Borrow from the Past.” There is a recent resurgence in ‘old-fashioned’ forms of family-centered funerals. Come and hear how the burial practices of our 19th century ancestors are making a comeback! Mr. Slocum is an internationally-known advocate for funeral consumer rights, and is the co-author of Final Rights, Reclaiming the American Way of Death.
The Meeting time at each location is 10:00 a.m. with a business meeting to follow the speaker. Join us for a great meeting and great conversation!
We hope to see you there!
