Colorado Funeral Directors Association


Leadership

The Colorado Funeral Directors Association is a 501(c)6 organization that is governed by a seven-person Board of Directors. Members of the Board of Directors are elected for two-year terms by a quorum of voting members at the annual meeting. Members may be re-elected according to the bylaws. 

The Board of Directors is responsible for ensuring the organization’s long-term financial stability and integrity. Directors ensure that the organization fulfills its mission by doing quality work. Directors recognize that in order to foster the organization’s continued viability and growth, diversification of income sources is essential and they pledge to personally contribute needed resources and talents toward this end.

There is no financial compensation for serving on the board. Directors are not reimbursed for travel to and from office meetings of the board. The Board convenes in-person at least two times each year and also meets via monthly teleconferences.
