Part of that commitment means we continue to develop our professional knowledge and skills to offer your family the best service possible.
Last month, two of our staff members, Yvonne Slonaker, Managing Funeral Director and Celebrant, and Justin Panske, Funeral Director and Celebrant, traveled to Memphis to attend ICCFA University. ICCFA (International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association) is an innovative organization composed of more than 9,100 cemeteries, funeral homes, crematories, memorial designers and related businesses worldwide. It is the only international trade association representing all segments of the cemetery, funeral service, cremation, and memorialization profession.
Yvonne attended courses on Management and Justin attended courses focusing on Leadership development. This college is renowned for having nationally renowned speakers who are experts in their field.
This was Yvonne’s 4th year of attending the University and she earned the privilege of participating in this year’s graduation! She worked hard, learned a lot, and made life-long connections. The Cress Family is proud to support the professional development of our staff members. Great job Yvonne and Justin!
