FCA's 2010 Conference was a hit! Author Robert Fulghum brought the house down, four prominent advocates introduced attendees to family-directed, undertaker-free funerals, and FCA's first-ever live fundraiser brought in $4,500 in donations from our generous members.
If you missed the conference, here's the next best thing. We've got audio recordings and handouts from presenters available for download below. If you don't see the recording or handout you're looking for, that means we don't have it; thank you for understanding.
Special thanks to Jim Null of the FCA of Western North Carolina for photographing our conference, and recording several presentations. You rock, Jim!
