Legacy Consulting Named New Management Firm

Dear Members,

I am excited to share with you some great news for our association.  The board has recently hired Legacy Consulting as the new Executive Director for the Arkansas Funeral Directors Association.  I have personally worked with Legacy on projects in the past and have great confidence in this team. Fortunately for us Legacy’s team, led by Chad Gallagher, has a great deal of experience in public relations and organizational growth strategies, as well as government relations.  While they are just getting started, I am looking forward to working with them to explore new ways our association can better serve our members.  I think this change will bring some fresh and helpful ideas to our association and most importantly will strengthen our ability to serve our members and help all of us to better serve our own communities.

You can contact Chad or any member of his team at 501.246.8842. Chad’s email is  Legacy’s offices are located in The Lafayette Building, 523 South Louisiana, Suite 222, Little Rock, AR 72201.

A link to their website is listed below.

As always, if I can do anything to help you please contact me anytime!
