Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) 

The AGEG Board of Directors encourage all funeral service professionals to follow Federal and State orders, follow CDC guidance, and practice best practices. We encourage you to share all guidance and information immediately with your staff. There are numerous printable resources for your use in your funeral home and share with your staff and the families you serve.

As the situation is rapidly changing, revised guidance and information about COVID-19 is available, including details about the vaccines. While we do our best to post guidance and information in real time, the links will take you directly to the individual websites to ensure the most accurate and timely information is accessible. 

Recent highlights are below.  Click HERE for additional COVID-19 guidance and information for funeral service, including vaccine allocation details.

        SAVE THE DATES FOR OUR 2021 CLINIC - AUGUST 23-25! 

        Safeguarding the health of our attendees, sponsors, speakers, staff, and our communities is paramount to the AGEG Board of Directors. With COVID-19 cases continuing to rise and the phased vaccination plan in Georgia, the AGEG Board of Directors carefully considered all factors and made the decision to postpone the Annual Clinic for 2021 until August. All events will be held in Forsyth, GA as usual.

        Our Annual Clinic offers valuable training from experienced industry professionals and is an excellent opportunity to spend time with your mentors, and network with your industry colleagues. We hope you will join us in August.

        NEED A DESK FOR THE OFFICE OR HOME? Vickie Bowen Henry, wife of AGEG Member Reginald C. Henry, has a desk for you!

        This solid walnut desk was purchased in 1964 to go in the arrangement office at my parent's funeral home so it has had very little use. It measures 42 inches wide and 75 inches deep with 6 drawers, however, one ledger is missing. This desk can be yours at not cost. You only need to pick it up. 
        Contact Vickie Bowen Henry today by calling 770-597-8042 (cell).
