Webcasting brings the ADEC Annual Conference to you


36th Annual 
ConferenceCan't travel to Baltimore for the ADEC conference? It doesn't mean you have to miss out! This year, ADEC will webcast selected sessions on all three conference days, featuring some of our highest-rated speakers from past conference and webinars. That means you can attend sessions "virtually" from your computer at home or work — choose individual sessions, a one-day pass, or a three-day pass to attend the conference via webcasting, and save the cost of travel. Learn more and see the schedule of available sessions.


Make a gift to ADEC part of your legacy

Living Legacy CircleA planned gift is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death, as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning. Planned giving allows you to keep your values alive and active through the workings of the association after you’re gone. It allows you to make a substantial donation to ADEC now without depleting your day-to-day income or retirement assets.

Your planned gift will ensure ADEC’s future, as well as help support research, professional education and the development of resources to help prepare the next generation of thanatologists.

Learn about the number of ways to make a planned gift to ADEC, and learn about our Living Legacy Circle of supporters who have already made such a gift.
