Recognizing Excellence and Creativity in Funeral Service
On Monday, October 21, 2013, at the 2013 NFDA International Convention & Expo, the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) will present the 2013 NFDA Innovation Award. The 2012 winner was ASD-Answering Service for Directors. The company was recognized for their mobile app, ASD Mobile.
Established in 2009, the NFDA Innovation Award recognizes and promotes creativity, innovation and excellence among funeral service suppliers and vendors. Funeral service vendors and suppliers that are current NFDA exhibitors may submit a product or service that became commercially available after January 1, 2012, for consideration in the 2013 NFDA Innovation Award competition. A distinguished panel of funeral directors will evaluate the entries and select five finalists.
The funeral service community then has an opportunity to review the finalists' entries and vote for the product or service they feel is the most innovative. These votes are combined with the judges' scores to determine the winner.
