Consumer Advocacy

In 1997, MBNA formed a Consumer Advocacy Committee to examine consumer issues as they relate to the memorialization industry. They also hired Carolyn Jacobi, Founder of Eternal Justice, to work with individual members and their customers, and to also make them aware of their rights and choices in memorializing family and friends.

Through our Consumer Advocacy Program, MBNA seeks to expose illegal and obstructive practices that prevent consumers from exercising their freedom of choice in memorialization. MBNA and Ms. Jacobi hope to provide members with guidance through education.

MBNA commented on the Funeral Rule Review 16CFR Part 453.  For a copy, click here.

A memorial can tell a person's life story in many ways: through the words carved into it, through its location, and through the form it takes. Custom carved memorials are beautiful and unique. They help to capture the story of a lifetime. This video shows brief snippets from the process of carving a custom monument.

An unlikely way to remember a Father and Grandfather! Let's create a better way to remember the people we love.

Who's your hero? Memorialization is about recording the stories of the every-day heroes that impact our lives more than any other people on earth.
