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

"The networking you gain through Selected is an invaluable opportunity for a funeral home. It’s hard to explain it to people who are not members of an organization like this and maybe don’t understand the benefit. Selected’s policy of membership by invitation only ensures that you are going to get the best possible members who have like-minded ideas about funeral service."
