Our funeral home has several strong professional affiliations.  We have earned the distinction of being one of only a very few firms in the nation to be invited to join Selected Independent Funeral Homes.  We are proud to be a part of this prestigious group.  Brad Speaks was elected to serve as the President of the Association, after serving on the national board of directors for a number of years, and is now a Past-President.  Bob Speaks is a former board member as well, and David Speaks was honored as the Selected NextGen Young Professional of the Year in 2015.

Our firm also enjoys membership in the Cremation Association of North America (CANA), which is the premier association of cremation providers in the nation.  As the cremation experts in Kansas City, we are very pleased to be a part of that group.  Likewise, we have been members of the International Cemetery, Cremation, and Funeral Association (ICCFA) and the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) for many years.

Finally, we participate fully in the Missouri Funeral Directors and Embalmers Association (MFDEA).  Brad Speaks has done two stints of duty on the board of directors of the state association and is a former district president. Funeral home manager, Chuck Townsend, is currently on the board of directors and many of our funeral directors have been involved at the district level.  The state association is just as important to us as our national affiliations.

By being involved in these sorts of organizations we are provided with ongoing relationships with other dedicated professionals who, like us, are committed to providing quality services. We maintain our focus on service and value, and our network of professional memberships provide us with the constant opportunity for advancement of service standards. Please feel free to visit their websites through the links below to learn more about these organizations.
