It’s hard to believe that only a week ago we were strolling through the aisles of the NFDA Convention Expo. We feel truly privileged to be a part of such a significant event and we are grateful to everyone who spent time with us at the convention. In looking back at our time in Boston, we wanted to share a few of the moments that made this year truly unforgettable for us here at ASD.
ASD was named the winner of the 2017 NFDA Innovation Award at the annual convention this week in Boston, MA. To receive this year’s award was especially meaningful for us here at ASD because we were recognized for our Suicide Telephone Operator Patch System (STOP), a feature that was invented by ASD solely to help those in crisis.
It’s that time a year again! The beginning of the autumn always brings the usual NFDA pre-convention excitement for us here at ASD. Every year, we study the NFDA schedule and learn about the host city to provide funeral directors with a fun and informative guide to all of the seminars, events and attractions of the upcoming convention. Please enjoy our Ultimate Guide to the 2017 NFDA Convention.
ASD is proud to be a Kates Boylston Technology Partner. As part of this partnership, our VP & Family-Member Owner, Kevin Czachor, will respond to questions from directors about telecommunications and mobile technology. This month, Kevin was asked, “How do I decide what mobile apps works best for me?” – Read Kevin’s response to learn how to decide what mobile apps are right for your funeral home.

This personal essay was written in support of the New York State Funeral Directors Association’s Tribute Foundation and International Overdose Awareness Day. It examines how an overdose death creates barriers for healing and complicates the grief process. It was important to us here at ASD to recognize this date and encourage others to speak openly about how addiction has impacted their lives.
