CNBC premiered a documentary called "Death: It's A Living" last night. If you didn't get a chance to see it, check your local listings as it will be shown again. I really encourage you to watch it. CANA Executive Director Barbara Kemmis and Past President Jerry Sullivan worked closely with CNBC producers on the cremation content of the show.
I think this was one of the best and most balanced portrayals of our industry to date. Cremation was a theme throughout the show, but it was presented as more than just the low-cost choice. The on-screen families working with CANA members John Horan and his staff and Katie Sullivan were shown seeking ways to personalize their experiences and were presented with a wide range of options.
What was your take on the program? It would be great to continue the conversation on the CANA Facebook page and LinkedIn. If you're not using social media, you can still participate by sending your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll collect all your feedback and put it in the next issue of the CANA Update.
Congratulations to all in the industry whose products and services were featured. This was a great representation of who we are and what we do. CANA board members and staff work with the media throughout the year to promote you, your businesses, and the industry. Thanks for your ongoing support.
