Are you having the talk?

Linda Darby,
Chief Executive Director
As many of you know, I am an active member and this years president of the Funeral and Memorial Information Council (FAMIC). And, I have had the great experience of helping make their "Have the Talk of a Lifetime" campaign a reality. It has been amazing witnessing the key funeral service organizations unite around a common goal and develop a campaign of this nature.

The goal of the "Have the Talk of a Lifetime" campaign is to get consumers talking about what matters most in their lives and how they want to be remembered. They recently won a gold award for "Integrated Campaign" from the 11th Annual Service Industry Advertising Awards competition! Out of 1,700 entrants, only 152 gold awards were distributed. Isn't that amazing?

I am thrilled to be a part of this effort, and I am asking you, my funeral service colleagues, to join me in making this campaign an even bigger success. And, you can start by going to Facebook and "liking" their page at www.facebook.com/HaveTheTalkOfALifetime.

If you want more information on how to get even more involved in the "Have the Talk of a Lifetime" campaign, you can visit the FAMIC website or email me at LindaD@trigard.com. I would love to talk to you about this amazing opportunity.
