For four years, Aftermath has attended the annual Washington Association for Coroners and Medical Examiners Conference (affectionately abbreviated as WACME). The conference provides training and educational opportunities to coroners and MEs in the pacific northwest region. This year, the four day event was hosted at the beautiful Heathman Lodge in Vancouver, and once again Aftermath was on hand to meet and speak with members on the subject of biohazard cleanup.
Big Things Come in Little Packages
Though the conference is smaller scale compared to some of the events we attend, the interactions at WACME are meaningful. Aftermath’s Senior Director of Marketing and Sales, Stephen Brown, described the significance: “We have seen a tremendous increase in families that we have been able to help in Washington as a result of supporting this organization. Therefore, this is a conference that remains one of high importance to us, and one we plan to attend for the foreseeable future.”
WACME members and attendees were respectful, friendly, and passionate about the educational aspects of the show, including the numerous professional presenters and workshops. The central goal of most conference goers was to improve upon the best practices of their industry to better serve their communities. Learning about each company that sponsored this year’s conference and how they support the objectives of MEs and coroners built on this initiative and served as a highlight for both attendees and vendors.
Visiting in the Vendor Hall
In the vendor hall, Stephen was able to network with visitors to the Aftermath booth. The coroners and MEs were particularly curious about what differentiates Aftermath from the competition. “It’s the scale of our business and our centralized services that helps distinguish us in the Washington market,” Stephen explained.
“Our ability to centrally take calls, quickly dispatch crews, and professionally and discretely begin work after our no obligation assessment, separates us from other biohazard companies with similar offerings. Furthermore, we work directly with the family’s insurance company to help ease their financial burdens. By having vertical specialization in these parts of our service lifecycle, we are uniquely positioned to quickly respond, provide the highest quality service, and guarantee the customer’s satisfaction with our work.”
In addition to answering questions, the Aftermath booth also featured the company’s hallmark giveaways such as water bottles and air fresheners. Stephen also held a drawing for a 5.11 Tactical Bag and $50 Visa Gift Card. The winner was Nick Henderson, Kittitas County Coroner.
