Funeral Consumers Alliance of the Piedmont Annual Meeting
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16th, 2018 from 1:00 - 5:00.

The location is the Worrell Professional Center on the campus of Wake Forest University (home to the School of Law).

Speakers: Tanya Marsh, Professor of Law at WFU and expert on cemetery and funeral law, and Joshua Slocum, Executive Director of Funeral Consumers Alliance, will be keynote speakers.

There will be a very large DEATH EXPO featuring all sorts of vendors and resources about end of life care---hospice, anatomical gift programs, casket and shroud makers, green burial and home funerals, Threshold Choir singers, etc. The Funeral Consumers Alliance of the Piedmont will also hold their brief annual meeting.

More information will be forthcoming as we get closer to September.

Formed in 2008, Funeral Consumers Alliance of the Piedmont is one of the newest of about 100 Funeral Consumers Alliance chapters across the United States. We are a grassroots, all volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit focused on funeral consumer education and advocacy. Our mission is "to work together as informed consumers for after-death arrangements that embrace our needs, preferences and rights." If you think of us as sort of all-volunteer-staffed Consumer Reports focused entirely on the local funeral industry, you have a pretty good sense of who we are!

In our day-to-day work, we field telephone inquiries from consumers, social workers, the news media and others. We host workshops and other events to educate funeral consumers. We advocate for families in the N.C. General Assembly. We provide speakers on consumer matters to area groups and organizations.

We invite you to join us!
