If you are employed by a Member Firm, you are already an Associate Member.  Your funeral home will send us your name each year and you will receive your membership card.  No separate membership is required.

Associate Members:  All funeral directors and embalmers who are duly licensed under the laws of the State of Georgia and who own or are employed by a Firm Member shall be recognized as an Associate Member and shall be entitled to receive those benefits which the Association makes available to such Associate Members.  Associate Members shall not be entitled to vote, but may speak on the floor of the annual conference.  Associate members may hold office and serve on committees.  If an Associate Member no longer owns or is no longer employed by a Firm Member, the individual’s Association Membership shall immediately terminate.  If they move to a different member firm, they are also members there.  Otherwise, they may join under the Individual Member category.
