Have you seen our "killer infographics?"

Donna Darby-Walthall,
Chief Financial Officer
As out of the box thinkers, we are willing to go that extra mile for a new idea. We are always searching for new ways to reach more families and educate them about the funeral industry.

Connecting Directors recently raved about the educational infographics published to our Facebook page created by Trigard's marketing department. If you aren't familiar with infographics, I recommend you do some research. They are a very interesting way to present information to make it more appealing to the reader.

I encourage you the take a look at the infographics and share them with your customers.
 
5 reasons to go to a cemetery

4 things you didn't know about cremation

6 reasons to go a funeral

5 reasons to prearrange your final wishes



As members of the Trigard family, I encourage you to get out there and educate your families. To be effective, we need to be constantly educating so that when the time comes, they will make informed decisions. I would like to motivate you to make it a goal to start thinking outside the box and do something new to educate your families. It depends on you.

2014 NCBVA Benchmark Survey
 
The National Concrete Burial Vault Association is asking all concrete burial vault producers to complete a benchmarking survey. "The report will provide an executive summary and detailed results designed to provide comprehensive, yet straightforward guidelines for analyzing profitability among concrete burial vault producers. This management tool will again provide the resources that enable NCBVA members to evaluate, plan and better manage their businesses."

NCBVA's goal is to have 80% of the membership complete the survey in 2014 with future years seeing 100% participation. It should take no more than 30 minutes to complete. A complete report will be sent to all participants the first week of April.
