The Funeral and Memorial Information Council

FAMIC is a unique organization made up of the leading associations in the funeral profession, whose participation in FAMIC is based on the commitment to enhance the understanding and experience of funeral service and memorialization.

The Board of Directors is made up of representatives from each of the member associations. A staff member (where appropriate) and volunteer, represent each association on the FAMIC Board. Each member’s term is renewable after one year, each individual association determines representation for their association on the board of FAMIC. Each association’s representative serves as President of FAMIC.

This provides all of the associations have an equal voice in the decisions of FAMIC.
