Just in time for the holidays, Getting Grace will be released in Wal-Marts nationwide on November 6. The family-friendly movie tells the story of a disaffected yet endearing funeral director who learns some very valuable lessons from a teenage girl with terminal cancer. It is a rare gem that delivers sharp writing, compelling acting, and an authentic representation of the funeral profession.
One in five children 18 and under will experience the death of someone close to them? Most people don’t realize just how many young people today are impacted by grief. This is why ASD is so passionate about championing the work of the Moyer Foundation and their Camp Erin initiative, which runs overnight grief camps for children who have experienced the death of a significant person in their life.
While every NFDA Convention leaves behind lasting memories for the ASD team, the quality of interactions shared this year will remain etched in our minds far into the future. In looking back at our time in Salt Lake City, we wanted to highlight some of the unforgettable moments and memories that elevated the 2018 NFDA Convention to a higher level.
ASD was named the winner of the 2018 NFDA Members’ Choice Award at the annual convention last week in Salt Lake City, UT. This prestigious award is given annually to a funeral service vendor whose product or service represents creativity, innovation and excellence. ASD was honored to have two submissions selected as finalists and received the award in recognition of our Web Form WatchDog™ feature.

ASD recently updated ASD Mobile to include several new tools to make your life easier. We’ve enhanced support for directors who receive messages via push notification using the app, which includes an option to control our new ASD ReAlert™. With this feature, ASD will send out a reminder notification to alert on-call directors when there is an outstanding message that has not been acted upon.
As a town defined by a stunning combination of natural and architectural wonders, Salt Lake City is sure to provide a one-of-a-kind backdrop for the 2018 NFDA Convention. With so much to do and so much to see, ASD wants to help you make the most of your time in SLC! We hope you enjoy this fun and informative guide to all of the can’t-miss seminars, events and attractions of the convention.
