Recipient of the NFDA Pursuit of Excellence Eagle Award
Brookfield, Wisconsin -Beard Mortuary will receive the 2002 National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) Pursuit of Excellence Eagle award for outstanding community service, professional integrity, and dynamic public relations programs. This marks the second consecutive year that Beard Mortuary has received the award.
"The Pursuit of Excellence program is the premier standard for funeral service excellence, and the Eagle award is one of the highest levels of achievement. Recipients of the award receive a prestigious Eagle trophy for display in their funeral home," said NFDA Acting Chief Executive Officer Christine Reichelt-Pepper.
To achieve recognition in the Pursuit of Excellence program, a funeral home must meet quality service criteria in eight categories of achievement. The categories include: education, compassionate service, technical skills, community and professional service, library or media resources, professional development, in-house staff training, and public and community relations. To earn the Eagle recognition, a funeral home must meet additional criteria in each category and create a scrapbook of their activities.
