Your NYSFDA Membership at Work

From the very beginning of the pandemic through today, we’re working as your advocates and serving as your go-to source for timely information and updates necessary to do your job safely while continuing to serve your families in the best way possible. Throughout the past year, your NYSFDA membership provided:

  • 8 video messages from Executive Director Mike Lanotte explaining the most critical news.
  • 15 live update webinars designed to answer your specific questions.
  • a COVID-19 Resource webpage frequently updated with the latest information.
  • 145+ pandemic-specific emails outlining evolving regulations, restrictions, and vaccination details.
  • 13 text messages delivered right to your phone with urgent pandemic news.

Additionally, we successfully advocated for the enactment of Executive Orders that provided necessary relief, including allowing for the use of digital/electronic signatures on funeral service-related documents; and authorizing non-NY licensed funeral directors, licensed but inactive NY funeral directors, and unlicensed funeral home staff to serve as designated agents under the supervision of NY licensed funeral directors. We also continue to serve as the primary advocate for funeral service with key stakeholders, including the Governor’s office, NYS Department of Health, NYS Department of State, Division of Cemeteries, FEMA, various statewide and regional associations, and many others.

As 2021 progresses, know that whatever comes next, we are ready to work for you in 2021 and beyond. And now, more than ever, your active membership is critical to the success of your funeral firm.

Renew your membership with the oldest funeral directors association in the US.
