“Our convention provides many opportunities for learning and networking, but we also want to make sure our guests have fun,” said NFDA CEO Christine Pepper, CAE.  “Our tours and specially planned social events not only allow attendees to discover the sights and sounds of Las Vegas, but also give them a chance have to socialize with their funeral service colleagues outside of the convention hours.”
