Engaging with Policymakers at the Advocacy Summit
RETURNING IN 2024
The NFDA Advocacy Summit is designed to build a broader understanding of community and strengthen your leadership skills as you engage with policymakers and colleagues from across the country. On Capitol Hill, you’ll advocate on legislative and regulatory issues that affect funeral service professionals and small businesses. Not only will you have the opportunity to educate members of Congress on the issues, but you will also enjoy a variety of networking opportunities and explore great landmarks at our nation’s capital.
While the 2021 & 2022 conference was cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Funeral Service Foundation plans to offer up to seven scholarships to attend the 2024 Advocacy Summit. The scholarships will cover two nights of accommodations at a host hotel, registration fees, and up to $500 in travel reimbursement.
SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS & APPLICATION DEADLINE
Further submission requirements and application deadlines will be available in early 2024.
