Stop OMCB Continuing Education Law
The Oregon Mortuary Cemetery Board is planning on imposing an unnecessary continuing education law. This law will create a burden on funeral homes both independent and corporate, demanding that every individual at both cemeteries and funeral homes attend or home study repetitive programs that teach nothing new. It will create a financial burden on the death care industry that will be passed on directly to the consumer. It will create an even larger burden on small town funeral homes with limited staff as it is extremely difficult for the individuals to take the time necessary to attend or study 10 hours of CE classes per year. Who benefits? the OMCB as someone will need to monitor each individual, the Oregon Funeral Directors Association as it will boost their attendance at conventions and the public speakers presenting there programs. Please join us in telling the Oregon Mortuary Cemetery Board NO! Allow funeral directors and cemeterians to serve families without the imposition of another unnecessary law.
