The NCBVA Convention will be a great opportunity for the business professional. You will be able to conduct business in a relaxing atmosphere while combining two very important industry events, NCBVA's Convention and the ICCFA's Convention.
NCBVA is one of the best communities for those wanting to learn and share. You'll be able to take advantage of this time with discussions about common challenges and sharing of information and best practices. The networking is unlimited and will continue long after everyone heads home. You are guaranteed to leave with at least one new idea to provide better service and make your job easier and more rewarding.
The time together will provide a full measure of thought-providing ideas and take-aways.
The event kicks off of Tuesday, April 4 with a dinner and annual recognition event including discussions on the latest legislative issues - some we won't realize until early 2017. We'll start the next day (April 5) off with a breakfast and morning session on Succession and Business Transition leading to a tour hosted by Nashville Wilbert Burial Vault Co.
Participants will have the option to register for the ICCFA Convention which kicks off immediately following our tour.
