After some time off, we were so blessed to be able to join together once again in Napa for the CCFW Annual conference. While many had to cancel and our numbers were small, those who attended really enjoyed the educational speakers, the roundtable discussions and a sense of camaraderie for those who were there. We truly missed everyone who was unable to attend. We hope to see more of you at our Annual Conference next year! Date and location to be announced in March 2022.

Attendees were welcomed Monday evening with the President’s Reception. Tuesday we dove right into our speakers with Author, Eric Layer, which everyone received a copy of “The Right Way of Death” as part of his keynote. The Cemetery360 swag bags were stuffed with goodies, handouts and more for each person in attendance. \
We learned about conflict resolution with Anna Schiele from the Diocese of Sacramento. We were livened up with the energetic Angelique Simpson of Matthews/Aurora as she spoke around leadership development, where teams of five worked together to build the tallest tower out of spaghetti noodles and marshmallows (you had to have been there).
For our Thursday Activity, we toured the Carmelite House of Prayer and had lunch with wine pairings at SilverOak Winery.
