Despite inch of snow, KIP judging begins

So far, three KIP (Keeping It Personal) judges have braved the highways to review contest entries today instead of waiting until the designated snow day. Yes, we're in the midst of a snow emergency. An inch of snow has fallen and we in the DC metro area are suitably panicked. Those judges must really be excited at the prospect of reading about what progressive cemeteries, crematories, funeral homes and suppliers are doing these days!

They were welcomed by ICCFA Communications Activity Manager Rob Treadway, who is staff liaison to the Personalization Committee, and ICCFA Director of Cremation Services Julie A. Burn, who I strongly suspect brought the snow with her from Illinois. Burn has chaired or co-chaired the Personalization Committee since the beginning of the 21st century.

There are four KIP contest categories: (1) Innovative Personalized Product, (2) Best Practice/Personal Touch, (3) Most Personalized Service or Memorial and (4) Event. Winners will be announced in WIRELESS and in ICCFA Magazine, and will be notified individually.

KIP judging room: The conference room at ICCFA headquarters in Sterling, VA, is set up for KIP Awards judging this week.

Snow emergency indeed

Wow, you may be even worse than Seattle!

Well, no, actually... this morning there were a few stray flakes flying about (snow, I mean, although the term could also describe the drivers) and traffic was practically at a standstill.

Kudos to those brave souls who slogged their way to your office for the KIP judging!
