2022 IFDF Annual Conference - Student Day at the Conference

Posted By: Ruth Bedell, PhD, QAS News ,

Student Day at the Conference!


For the first time in IFDF's 30-year history, we will be offering a Student Day at the conference on Friday, June 10, 2022. Students from the three mortuary science programs in Florida (Florida State College at Jacksonville, Miami-Dade College, and St. Petersburg College along with Gupton-Jones College of Funeral Service in Decatur, GA) will be able to attend the day's activities for free.

We have planned a fun, educational, and networking day for students. Students will be able to network with funeral home owners and funeral directors. So, bring your resume to share with your new contacts!

Students will be able to attend the Trade Show and visit exhibit booths to learn about new innovations, products, and services available for funeral homes and funeral service professionals. Make sure to bring your business cards to leave at the booths, so you may enter their raffle drawings after you have the opportunity to visit with the suppliers! The Exhibit Hall will be open from 10 am to 3 pm EDT.

After a free lunch buffet in the Exhibit Hall, students will be able to attend a special 2-hour embalming seminar with the internationally recognized public speaker and technical trainer, Monica Torres, Owner and Founder of NXT Generation Mortuary Support, LLC. She will present on "Embalming the Oversize Case."
