We are an energetic, growing association that provides distinctive opportunities to our members through networking and education. Since 1949 the North Carolina Cemetery Association strives to foster a closer association between the owners, operators, officers and employees of cemeteries, mausoleums and columbariums, to disseminate information relating to the operation of such enterprises. We encourage the building of modern interment spaces with embellishments and beautification symbolizing life and eternity. We maintain high standards for the industry and foster respect for it by encouraging honest and sincere dealings among our members and the public. We encourage the public to see that providing interment space in advance of need is a necessary and beneficial provision for family protection. We represent our members in matters of legislation and in all public or private hearings or controversies where their rights are attacked or their interests threatened.
