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 had a conversation with a new member who attended a recent Annual Meeting. He has been very active in other funeral service organizations and certainly aware of educational opportunities. He told me that, in his career, he had never been involved with a more passionately engaged group of funeral directors nor had he been involved with as high a quality of programming as he experienced at that meeting."
