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

"Any time you can present to families and to the public what you stand for in terms of good practices and ethics is going to be a very positive reflection on your funeral home. That’s what makes Selected’s Code of Good Practice so important."
