Current needs as of December 2018: Board Members and Contract Committee Members
People that have a passion for our cause typically make good board members. Bring your own knowledge and expertise about the organization’s purpose and network and help us serve the funeral consumers of Washington State!

Meet with, call, or write letters to relevant Washington State legislators and U.S. Congressional delegates on issues of funeral price transparency, consumer choice, and protection from predatory sales practices.
