What Next?

We will review your application and reach out to you and, if appropriate, we will assist you in taking steps to secure the required sponsorships (from three sponsor members or by Selected's Board of Directors, including the Board representative in your geographic group.) Then we would seek approval by the Board of Directors, followed by a time when we open up to feedback from all current members. If no significant objections are received, you will receive an official invitation.

We promise that you will not go through the application process alone. Selected's staff and current membership will guide you every step of the way. If you have questions or need additional information, please contact us.

What our members are saying

"I believe that the content and character of our membership make Selected the most relevant to our profession. The network of individuals, educational programming and advances in member services provide the best opportunity to improve the quality of a firm’s offerings with a distinct competitive advantage. As a member, it is obvious that I have learned from large and small firms alike which makes Selected Independent Funeral Homes compelling to any size service provider."
