The Express Funeral Funding sales and marketing team traveled to Boston this October for the 2017 National Funeral Director Association (NFDA) International Convention and Expo ! The team began the week, at Stow Acres Country Club in Stow, MA for the Funeral Service Foundation Annual Golf Scramble. Express Funeral Funding was proud to sponsor the 12th hole as an Eagle-level sponsor, donating $3,000 to the event. While the day was scattered with cold winds and rain showers, this did not slow the foursome down! Andy Buckman, Adam Setty, Deanna Dydynski, and Jay Tiesing, brought home the trophy, winning the golf tournament with the best gross score of the day, 16 under! Later that evening the entire team had a chance to catch-up with fellow colleagues and old friends at the NFDA college-alumni-themed welcome party.
The next three days were jam-packed with motivational key-note speakers, educational seminars and NFDA campfire sessions! With the NFDA convention falling on Halloween, the Express team brought out their best for the October holiday. Suited, in khaki and neon orange-striped jumpsuits, black boots, elbow pads and the necessary proton-pack, the team made sure the convention center was “all clear” in their Ghostbuster costumes! Not to go unnoticed, Adam Setty, customer relations manager completed the Ghostbuster group with his Stay Puft Marshmallow Man suit.
The remaining time at the national convention gave Express Funeral Funding a chance to thank funeral homes and cemeteries nationwide with amazing Express giveaways! The team gave away hundreds of gifts, from custom designed Boston t-shirts, and EFF Ozark koozies, to Apple Watches, Yeti coolers and much more! Now home in Clarksville, IN the Express team is gearing up for next year’s National Funeral Director Association convention in Salt Lake City!
