CFDA will launch its new education program, “The Basics of Colorado Funeral Service Laws”, at the upcoming Fall District Meetings.
This program, developed by the Colorado Funeral Directors Association, provides a brief review of Colorado Revised Statutes and federal laws that pertain to funeral service. The class will be a great refresher for the experienced professional and an excellent primer for new employees to learn basics about the funeral business in Colorado.
Few people know more about Colorado funeral service laws than Chuck Bowman, CMSP, CFSP, CCO, long-time chair of Legislative & Advocacy for the Colorado Funeral Directors Association. He has testified in support of funeral service on numerous occasions, helped to write much of the language that now appears in statutes, and continues to serve as a liaison with state regulatory authorities as a resource for funeral service in Colorado. Steffani Blackstock has worked with the CFDA for more than 20 years and has taken an active role in legislative and advocacy efforts since her appointment as Executive Director in 2005.
The Fall District Meetings will be held in two locations - in Longmont on August 24, and in Colorado Springs on August 31. Western slope members are invited to participate in a two-part webinar series on September 7 and 14. Click here for registration information.
The Colorado Funeral Service Board has approved 2.5 contact hours of CE credit for this program. The credits may be applied toward 2017 CFSB certification renewal.
