New York State Funeral Directors Association

As you know, over the past several weeks and months NYSFDA continually monitored the rapidly evolving developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic. After much deliberation and several conversations with leadership, we have decided to cancel our 2020 in-person Convention.

Our first and most important priority has been, and continues to be, the health and safety of our members, your staff and the families you serve, and the well-being of our employees. In addition to the health and safety concerns, the uncertainty of the current and future landscape as it relates to large gatherings was a driving factor in our decision-making process. While not an easy decision, we believe it is consistent with the approach we have taken throughout the pandemic; namely making decisions in the best interest of our members and NYSFDA.

Still need Continuing Education credits? We realize many of you were depending on the Annual Convention to obtain your live credits. Please know we are committed to providing several webinars between now and October 29 to assist you in obtaining all of your CEUs. Remember, webinars are considered live credits. Plus, any credits received between now and October 29 can be used for either the 2018-2020 biennium or the 2020–2022 biennium. Watch your email and our website for upcoming opportunities.

And mark you calendar now for the NYSFDA 2021 Convention, scheduled for August 22-25, 2021 in Saratoga Springs.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigated this uncharted territory. We look forward to connecting with you soon - online and in-person.

Be well & stay safe,
NYSFDA Leaders & Staff
