LIVE & INTERACTIVE WEBINARS

While nothing compares to our in-person events, where attendees can earn Continuing Education hours and build a valuable statewide network of industry peers, GFDA is aware not all funeral staff can step away from the funeral home to attend our events held across the state. We have partnered with Continuing Vision for a NEW MEMBER BENEFIT. This partnership allows us to provide you and your staff opportunities to earn Continuing Education Hours and GFDA Members receive discounted registration fees.  The webinars we share are approved by the Georgia State Board of Funeral Service.
