The deadline for the 2018 NFDA Pursuit of Excellence Awards will be here before you know it. It's time to get started on your entry (if you haven't already done so) and submit it to NFDA no later than July 15, 2018.
For 35 years, the Pursuit of Excellence Award has been a hallmark for funeral homes that are committed to providing exceptional service to grieving families and the community, while adhering to the highest ethical and professional standards.
If families trust you and your staff to exceed expectations before, during and after the funeral, you may already qualify for the Pursuit of Excellence Award.
Here are a few tips to help you finalize and submit your entry:
- Complete details are available in the 2018 Registration and Application Materials booklet (Español). You can also apply electronically.
- Be sure you have been specific – providing names, dates, places, etc. – when describing how your firm has fulfilled a criterion.
- If documentation (e.g., pictures, certificates, badges) is required, clearly label it so the award committee knows which criterion it is supporting.
- If you are mailing your entry, assemble it in an organized, bound format (e.g., folder, three-ring binder, scrapbook, etc.). Loose materials will not be accepted.
- Entries not received by the deadline will not be accepted, no exceptions.
- Electronic entry forms must be finalized and sent to NFDA by 11:59 p.m. CST on July 15, 2018. The electronic entry form has instructions on how to submit your firm’s entry to NFDA.
