Free Resources to Support Funeral Professionals

We've partnered with Jason Troyer, PhD, to provide free inspirational journals at our booth and the Mt Hope Grief Services booth (#2266). Journaling is a proven stress reliever, and these journals provide writing prompts that help funeral professionals reflect on experiences that affect you. This is just one component of a career fatigue program that we are developing now with Dr. Troyer to help support funeral and allied professionals.

Tech-Themed Giveaways and a Chance to Win

Stop by the Homesteaders booth to claim a PopSocket mobile device accessory while supplies last. PopSockets can be used as phone grips, device stands and more. You’ll also be able to enter for a chance to win a 55” LED 4K Ultra HD Roku TV.
