ICCFA Internal Chief Operating Officer Joseph W. Budzinski Resigns, Effective January 2011
Joseph W. “Joe” Budzinski, Internal Chief Operating Officer of the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association, has announced his resignation, effective January 7, 2011.
Budzinski stated, “After completing my 20th year of employment in January 2010 … I realized that if I was ever going to do anything else for a living, this would be the year to make the decision. We have accomplished some great things in this association, and I have the highest regard for all the staff and volunteers who made that happen, so it is not an easy decision to make. But we only get one shot at life and it is time for me to try something different. … There is no association in our industry that can match ICCFA for its nimbleness, entrepreneurial spirit and progressive attitude. You truly have a bright future.”
In accepting Budzinski?s resignation, President Kevin R. Daniels, CCE, stated, “Over the past 20 years you have made incredible contributions and improvements to the association. You have put in place a very professional and competent staff and have improved the overall strength of our association. There is no doubt in my mind that the association is in much better shape today than it was when you assumed the role of Internal Chief Operating Officer. I express my gratitude for all your contributions and hard work over the last many years with special recognition for the past 10 years when you and I have worked very closely together on many projects. On behalf of the Board of Directors of the association and the entire membership, as President, I thank you for all you have done and wish you the very best success and happiness in all your future endeavors.”
A search committee has been organized to develop criteria for the position and to interview prospective candidates. In the meantime, Robert M. Fells, Esq., External Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel, will serve in the capacity of acting executive director.

Its membership is composed of more than 7,500 cemeteries, funeral homes, crematories, memorial designers and related businesses, representing in excess of 25,000 employees worldwide.
