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 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.

ANG CHIN MOH FUNERAL DIRECTORS earned the Best of the Best Award for THE LAST PORTRAIT.
ANG CHIN MOH FUNERAL DIRECTORS’s voluntary participation in the Pursuit of Excellence Award program reflects a clear determination to exceed the expectations of those they serve,” said NFDA Chief Executive Officer Christine Pepper, CAE. “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.”
“A lot of social, hospice care and nursing home workers have told us that when their folks are going to die, they don't have a picture. One of the things we are doing now is doing their make-up and taking their photos so that they have that last portrait,” said CEO Deborah Anderson-Andres.
