On Oct. 11, 2010, Moore Funeral Home was honored with its 11th Pursuit of ExcellenceŽ Award by the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) during its International Convention & Expo in New Orleans, La.

Only 166 firms from around the world received this prestigious recognition, placing Moore Funeral Home among an elite group of funeral service professionals. Pursuit of Excellence Award recipients raise the bar on funeral service excellence by adhering to the highest ethical and professional standards and providing unsurpassed service to families and communities.

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 serving in the funeral service profession, and promoting funeral home services through a variety of marketing, advertising and public relations programs.

Moore Funeral Home's voluntary participation in the Pursuit of Excellence program reflects a clear determination to exceed the expectations of those they serve," NFDA Chief Executive Officer Christine Pepper, CAE said. "This prestigious recognition assures families of the high-quality, compassionate service they will receive the moment they walk through the funeral home's front door."

Moore Funeral Home has received the NFDA's Pursuit of Excellence award for the past eleven years and was inducted into the NFDA Hall of Excellence in 2009. Moore Funeral Home has also been awarded the Indiana Funeral Directors Association Award of Excellence for 2009 and 2010. "We are so pleased to be the Wabash Valley's most honored funeral home, recognizing our 125 years of dedication to our profession," Rob Moore, owner of Moore Funeral Home, said.

NFDA is the world's leading funeral service association, serving 18,500 individual members who represent more than 9,900 funeral homes in the United States and internationally. From its headquarters in Brookfield, Wis., and its Advocacy Division office in Washington, D.C., NFDA informs, educates and advocates to help members enhance the quality of service they provide to families.
