Each year the UFDA board selects up-and-coming promising funeral professionals to receive the Rookie Recognition award. We are always looking for nominations from funeral home owners/managers, co-workers and others who notice new funeral professionals going above and beyond to make a difference in the profession.
What are the criteria for nominees?
Licensed funeral director
Current member of UFDA
Licensed 5 years or less
How many are selected each year?
The UFDA board strives to select up to four individuals to receive the award each year.
How are they recognized?
A member(s) of the UFDA board comes to the funeral home and presents a plaque to recognize the nominee.
They also receive a free registration to an upcoming Annual Convention or Midwinter Meeting.
Their achievements are recognized in UFDA’s Post e-newsletter and at UFDA’s Annual Convention.
