Take the lead: Education Sessions
Following on from the success of the SAIF Belfast Funeral Education Sessions, SAIF Scotland will be hosting the first Scottish Funeral Education Sessions on 19 November at the Dunblane Hydro Hotel.
The day-long event will cover a wide range of topics, including regulation, mental health, embalming, resomation, legal matters and digital marketing.
The event is open to SAIF members and staff without charge and will be followed by a ticketed dinner event for all members, partners and staff. The event venue has provided a delegate accommodation rate for members wishing to stay overnight.
Much like the Belfast event, there will be a key focus on mental health with SAIF Care and SAIFSupport represented by Catherine Betley, and Angela Maguire from De Exeter House addressing the issue of addiction in the workplace.
Regulation also holds prominence in the schedule with Katrina McNeill from the Scottish Government Burial and Cremation Team presenting the latest progress on Regulation of the Scottish Funeral Director.
Places are limited, so members are encouraged to book early to avoid disappointment.
