The group joined together for two days of discussions over industry concerns that collectively and geographically could be opportunities to further advance this multi-state partnership.

Several key matters examined during the meeting were; cross-state sharing of association services, legislative continuity in individual state rules and regulations, the delivery of regional seminars, education and training of interns, workforce retention, reciprocity and professional development.

Following the success of this inaugural gathering, the group, now named the Northeast Funeral Service Partnership, is planning future meetings for 2019.
