2019 Awards in Excellence

Each year at the AFCCA Annual Convention, we honor individuals and locations that exemplify the Arizona, Funeral, Cemetery and Cremation Association Mission Statement:

“…to ensure that those who require our services receive the highest degree of professional services available. AFCCA promotes continuing education, high ethical standards, and advocacy for families and professionals in the death care industry.”

Thank you is the most motivating message in any language. We feel that annual recognition is the tailwind that moves the Funeral Profession forward and creates our future leaders, movers and shakers. This is your chance to nominate your colleagues (or yourself), a staff member and/or location that you feel are professional, ethical, and compassionate towards families they interact with.

We will honor the winners of each category with an award at a luncheon on Thursday, June 6th.  All nominees will be notified and invited to the luncheon, however winners will not be announced until the event.
