Meetings

There is something truly special that occurs whenever Selected members gather. It’s what always has set us apart. Our meeting opportunities serve as a catalyst for positive change and an innovation incubator for the best and brightest in funeral service. The more of our members who participate, the more insightful the conversations, the more engaging the learning and the more memorable the time together is. We invite you to explore our pallete of meeting offerings and hope to see you soon!
