Randy L. McCullough, NYSFDA Deputy Executive Director
Marianne Schrom, NYSFDA Assistant Director of Government Affairs
Initiated by NYSFDA, this law allows for the interment of veterans’ unclaimed cremains by removing the barriers that previously existed to determine veteran status, while also providing the flexibility and liability protections necessary for funeral directors and veterans’ organizations alike to carry out this noble endeavor. Randy and Marianne will share the specifics of the law, explain the process of working with veterans groups, and answer questions. The program will be introduced by a brief review of how this law came about. Call instructions and materials will be provided to participants in advance.

Each Fall NYSFDA hosts trainings that will satisfy your mandatory federal requirement for yearly OSHA training.
Several of the OSHA Standards that apply generally to funeral homes have an annual training requirement. Participants will receive a Training Certificate indicating the information covered in the presentation and how that information satisfies these training requirements.
This session will specifically address the training requirements of the Bloodborne Pathogen, Hazard Communication and Formaldehyde standards. These certificates should be placed in employees’ personnel files and should be kept for a period of three years. Licensed funeral directors may also receive certification for one (1) hour of continuing education. NOTE: You may only claim CE credit once in the biennium.
Registration MUST be received a minimum of one week prior to each scheduled training program. Each registered participant will receive a registration confirmation and teleconference instructions by email. Please make sure to provide a valid email address. NOTE: The call-in number is not toll-free.

What purpose does a funeral serve?
It is the customary way to recognize death and its finality. Funerals are recognized rituals for the living to show respect for the dead and to help survivors begin the grief process. Funerals in one form or another have been conducted to honor the dead since around 35,000 BC.
