Live Oak Bank Supports The Educational Efforts Of The ICCFA

Funding from Live Oak Bank supports the educational efforts of the ICCFA Educational Foundation

In 2005, the ICCFA Educational Foundation was established to solicit and disburse funds in support of educational and charitable activities determined by the Board of Directors of the International Cemetery and Funeral Association, including the granting of scholarships to attend association conferences. Live Oak Bank supported the efforts of the organization by making a donation to allow participants to attend the annual ICCFA Sales & Marketing Meeting and ICCFA University held every July in Memphis, TN. "The Foundation appreciates this gift from Live Oak Bank that will enable more individuals to advance their educational credentials through ICCFA seminars and programs," stated Robert Fells, the ICCFA's Executive Director and General Counsel. "Our profession's enviable hallmark of colleagues helping colleagues is continued through the bank's generosity."

"At Live Oak Bank, we pride ourselves on supporting educational opportunities for our current and potential customers," commented Doug Gober, Sr. Loan Officer at Live Oak Bank. "The educational programs provided by the ICCFA are integral for the continued growth and innovation of the death care industry. We need owners who are progressive, forward thinking and eager to learn if we collectively want to improve our profession."
