As we welcome the beautiful spring weather, FrontRunner Professional is also kicking off a very busy month on the road with funeral director’s all over the United States and Canada. As the Marketing Director of FrontRunner Professional, I will be kicking off the busy month at the American Academy McAllister Institute of Funeral Service (AAMI) conference in New York City this upcoming weekend (April 30th). There will be 4 CEU’s up for grabs and attendees will learn  the benefits of an integrated marketing strategy. It doesn’t stop there. The FrontRunner team will then host a two-day session at FrontRunner’s own Technology Center in Kingston from May 5-6 and more. We hope to see you  somewhere on the road!
