The Paul-McBride Funeral Chapel is proud to announce that it has been awarded the Pursuit of Excellence "Best of the Best Award" by the National Funeral Directors of America.
To achieve the Pursuit of Excellence Award, NFDA member funeral homes must evaluate components of their business against standards set forth by the Pursuit of Excellence program and demonstrate proficiency in key areas of the funeral service profession. Participants are required to fulfill criteria in six categories of achievement that demonstrate commitment to: complying with state and federal regulations, providing ongoing education and professional development opportunities for staff, offering outstanding programs and resources to bereaved families, maintaining an active level of involvement within the community, participating and actively service in the funeral service profession, and promoting funeral home services through a variety of marketing, advertising and public relations programs.
As part of the entry process, all program participants are required to submit an essay describing the development and execution of a program or service that had a positive impact on those served. These essays are then considered for "Best of the Best" - a program recognition in addition to the Pursuit of Excellence Award.
This year, only 4 Pursuit of Excellence Award recipients were also recognized with a "Best of the Best Award." Paul McBride Funeral Chapel was one of those four. Essays are judged on the uniqueness of the idea on a national level, quality of implementation, overall benefit to those served, overall benefit to the funeral home and how easily the idea can be replicated or modified by another funeral home.
