Aftermath Visits the Pennsylvania State Coroners Conference
As September ended, Aftermath representatives attended conferences in Kansas, Minnesota, Indiana, and Pennsylvania. By far one of the longest standing events for Aftermath is attending the yearly Pennsylvania State Coroners Conference. CSCU’s John Tyler and Aftermath’s Senior Manager of Law Enforcement Relations, Stephen Brown, visited the annual conference, hosted at The Center at Holiday Inn Lehigh Valley.
This well-attended annual conference attracts an audience of mostly coroners and deputy coroners. The Carbon County Coroner even brought his entire office of deputies!
“This conference is a staple for our east coast locations,” John noted. “We’ve been visiting for over 15 years now. This year was a great event as always; it offers us a chance to meet new and existing contacts in person, which is rewarding. As always, the response was overwhelmingly positive; the coroners and deputies are very thankful for what we do and appreciate how we help families. I am proud to say we have an excellent relationship with this association and its members.”
Vendors Welcome at the PSCA
Though Aftermath was one of three biohazard companies to attend the event, CSCU/AMS is the leader in the Industry servicing Pennsylvania and the surrounding area. “We have a great response time on the east coast, which many coroners inquired about. We also have excellent local references and a reputation for helping others in need of our services.”
A series of training workshops and featured guest speakers kept coroners busy all week, but John and Stephen were pleased to report that most coroners carved out time to visit with the vendors. “Booth traffic was steady throughout the event,” said John. “Our giveaways (water bottles, chapstick, pens, etc.) were a lot of fun for the attendees; the air fresheners are still our most popular item. Being so close to Halloween, I also purchased some candy and a spooky display tray for the table. Everybody got a laugh out of the display, and the candy was a big hit, especially in the afternoon when most needed a sugar rush.”
In addition to the usual grabbag of conference goodies, Stephen and John also gave away a booth prize. Lisa Potteiger of the Dauphin County Coroner’s Office won a $50 Visa gift card.
The conference reception was held at the America on Wheels Museum in Allentown. John declared it was an “awesome choice.” “The displays of cars, trucks and motor bikes was amazing. They even had the vehicles from the Transformer Movie.”
