New York State Funeral Directors Introduce a New and Dynamic Web Site

ALBANY, NY (09/09/2010)(readMedia)-- The New York State Funeral Directors Association (NYSFDA) has just launched a new and improved Web site:

According to NYSFDA Executive Director Bonnie L. McCullough, CAE, "It is more important than ever that our members have instant access to the information they need at any time of the day or night, especially when it comes to education compliance. And, with more and more members of the public -- such as consumers, reporters and public officials -- visiting the site, we strongly believed it was time to enhance the content and refresh the appearance. The update was made to make it more user-friendly so that this critical information is available "24/7" to both our members and the public at large."

The new site enables visitors to use a Web 2.0 browser that includes interactive information sharing and user-centered design. Features include an enhanced search engine, driving directions to NYSFDA member funeral homes, more interactive content, and a portal to NYSFDA's new social media offerings including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Bonnie McCullough's blog.

The expanded site continues to give visitors information about all aspects of funeral service and end-of-life issues; enables consumers to locate a neighborhood funeral home and provides links to other helpful resources. Reporters can access the Web site and click on "News" for the latest news releases. "Press Room" features the Association's media kit, officers and photos.

Founded in 1889, NYSFDA's mission is to promote the highest standards of funeral service to the public and to enhance the environment in which its members operate. Over 900 member firms and 3500 licensed funeral directors who operate across the state belong to the New York State Funeral Directors Association. In addition to maintaining a Web site at, NYSFDA also publishes a quarterly newspaper column "Transitions", as well as brochures which educate and inform consumers about end-of-life issues.
