The  British Columbia Funeral Association's Annual General Meeting and 2016 Conference will be held May 4th to the 6th, 2016 at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre. We have some exciting changes this year - make sure you join us for an exciting, educational and enjoyable conference. We will see you there!

Our conference schedule has been developed, with the Annual General Meeting taking place Wednesday, May 4th, and opening reception and Exhibitors Showcase to follow. All BCFA members are invited to attend. 

This year's conference theme is:

"Risky Business" 

Minimizing Risk and Maximizing Reward In Today’s

Business Environment.

No matter who we are or where we live and work, we all face risks. And we all seek rewards. This is also the reality for all funeral, cemetery and cremation professionals serving the client families of today. We all strive to provide meaningful and rewarding service experiences to each and every family but, in today’s challenging business environment, we also face many new risks. Some of these risks, if unforeseen or mishandled, could have a devastating impact on our businesses. The best strategy is to be informed and prepared for such risks so that the rewards we gain from well served client families will multiply.

We have powerful and dynamic keynote speakers including Michael Saletta; Larry Stuart Jr.; Chris Farmer; Codi Shewan; Gary Carmichael; Patrick Downey; Dustin Wright and more, with guest presentations from the CPBC and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission.

We are also excited to have a world class trade show featuring booths and exhibits from top industry suppliers.
This year’s conference will have valuable information for every cemetery, cremation and funeral professional!
