French Funeral Home was honored Oct. 24, with the 2011 Pursuit of Excellence Award by the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) during its International Convention and Expo in Chicago.

Only 147 firms from around the world received the recognition.

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 earn an NFDA Pursuit of Excellence Award, a participating funeral home must meet or exceed business standards set forth by the program and demonstrate proficiency in key areas of the funeral service, such as compliance 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.

Participants are also required to adhere to a Pledge of Ethical Practices.

"French 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."

"It is very rewarding to be recognized by our national organization and quite humbling to be placed at the top of our profession," French Funeral Home representative Nick French said.
