Selected understands continuing education (CE) credit is a top priority for many members, so CE also is provided as part of your in-person meeting registration. We are seeking accreditation for CE for 8.5 contact hours from the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice and states that have CE requirements. Since credit and session approvals vary by state, you can check your state's approval statuses as they become available on Selected's Continuing Education page.

NOTE: Members seeking continuing education in Canadian Provinces can contact or call 800-323-4219 to request session/speaker details in order to directly submit an application on your own behalf to your Province(s) of choice.

Selected strives to hold safe events, recognizing it is not possible to remove all risks, specifically related to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. We are working with the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort to monitor local guidelines, understanding those guidelines can continue to change in the coming months. On August 24, 2022, Grand Cayman discontinued all travel restrictions. Click here for information on the current protocols and restrictions on the island. Selected also continues to encourage members to follow recommendations from the CDC. In addition, Selected expects and appreciates that participants at all Selected meetings be mindful and respectful of others and their individual comfort level.
