The Southern (SCCFA) is excited to be celebrating 90 Years of Being Southern at our annual convention, to be held June 25-27 at the Park Vista Hotel in Gatlinburg, TN. Joining us for this year’s convention are the cemetery associations from Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Our relationship with the state associations within our 15 state region are very important to us. We would like to extend an invitation to each executive director within our region to attend our annual convention and we will provide your registration fee at no charge! We feel this is a great way for you to experience our convention and see what we do, as we work with different states to host joint conventions now and in the future. I hope to make this an on-going offer, depending on how well it is received this year.

If you do plan to attend, and if you wish to bring a guest, please reach out to me on what you will need to do to get them registered as well. Registration fees for your guest would apply, depending on which events they wish to attend.

If you would like to take advantage of this complimentary registration, please complete the attached registration form and return it to me as soon as practical. I’m also attaching the preliminary agenda, hotel information and some general information to help you plan.

We would love for you to experience this year’s SCCFA convention and join in the celebration of our 90th anniversary! I look forward to hearing from you.

Registration is Open!
