Presenter Bio(s)
My name is Joseph Timms and I am Vice-President of Coastal Monument Company. I am the son to Joey Timms, President of Coastal Monument Company. I am the Grandson of Joe Timms, the Founder of Coastal Monument Company. We have been on the retail side of the Monument Business since 1948. Before making the transition my Grandfather worked from the wholesale side. I have been attending MBNA events since I was 2, but didn't start working for the company until I was 10. I started off doing little jobs like cutting the grass. I worked my way up in our company in High School, first on our road crew setting Memorials, then in our shop cutting and blasting them. After College at The University of South Carolina I moved up to drafting and design, eventually working my way up to where I am now in an Executive position. I am now 31 and I am still learning new things every day about our complex industry.

Cost
$25.00 for MBNA Members / $65.00 for Non-Members
Note: Registration is FREE for Certified Memorialists®.

What is an MBUniversity Webinar?
A MBUniversity Webinar is a live, interactive 60-minute conference presented over the telephone and over the Internet. You can attend from any location that has telephone and Internet access. You pay just one registration fee for as many participants as you wish at each call/log-in location.

Note that high-speed Internet access is not mandatory – the system works with dial-up but you must have separate connections for the audio and video portions if you wish to listen and watch simultaneously. You may use cell phones for the audio if you have only one connection or if you must be away from a computer for the webinar.

Who presents at an MBUniversity Webinar?
Your webinar will have one or more speakers who are recognized experts on the topic. Conferences typically include a Q&A session; you can ask questions by phone or instant messaging options.

CEU Credits
The MBNA Certification Program was developed as a result of a three-year study program by some of the industry's most recognized leaders. It raises the professional standards to those engaged in the memorialization industry and awards the top level of competence and ethical conduct. The MBNA Certified Memorialist® (CM) designation is the highest honor of professional achievement available in the memorial industry. Certification is awarded to individuals, not a firm as a whole. Both Members and non-members of MBNA can apply to become a CM.

Requirements to earn the “Certified Memorialist”® designation under the MBNA Certification Program are divided between successful completion of the examination, which is based upon material in the Certification Manual, and the accumulation of points awarded for participation in the specific activities listed below. To achieve initial certification, a minimum of 50 points must be accumulated; individuals have a maximum of 5 years immediately preceding application for certification during which to accumulate the required points.

To maintain the “Certified Memorialist”® designation under the MBNA Certification Program, an individual must earn a minimum of 30 points in these categories over a period of 3 years. Recertification must be made 3 years from the last designated certification.

This program has been approved for one Continuing Education Unit (CEU) towards initial or recertification as a CM®.What does my registration include?
Your registration includes long-distance charges for the audio portion and log-in to the video presentation. Once logged in, all handouts are downloadable prior to the start of the webinar. MBUniversity webinars also include one hour/unit of Continuing Education.
