Membership

THE ONLY PERSON WHO TRULY APPRECIATES WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO AS A CEMETERIAN IS ANOTHER CEMETERIAN.

All cemeteries, large or small, wealthy or with small financial resources, municipal, religious or private, or performing 20, 200 or 2000 burials per year share the same concerns and problems. They can also share the same solutions. Join the VCA and meet colleagues with whom you can share information, making your work as a cemeterian easier and more enjoyable. Join today.
