Terms are two years (February 2020 - February 2022) and offer a great opportunity to get involved in the decision making and leadership of MBNA. Trustees are encouraged to attend Executive Committee meetings and, in the course of their term, represent their district, serve on a committee or work group, advocate benefits of membership to other memorialists, welcome new members and submit quarterly reports.

Nominations may be initiated for Trustees in even numbered districts (2, 4, 6, 8 and 10) by those who desire to serve or those interested in nominating a specific person to the position of District Trustee. Trustees will be elected by members of the respective District and installed at the MBUniversity Conference in Athens, GA on Saturday, February 8, 2020.  Click here to nominate an individual for District Trustee.

NOMINATION FORM

 

One of the most iconic tools of a stone mason is the square-tipped chisel used to break stone in a straight line. This video shows the centuries-old process of rock pitching.

Stone is polished by hours of work by a skilled craftsman. There is no "coating" that is applied. The beautiful, nearly permanent shine on memorials is created by a series of diamond impregnated pads, water, and a skilled craftsman. If the polishing process is done incorrectly, the stone can overheat causing the stone surface to prematurely crumble.

Remembering and recording the lives of loved ones that were cremated is as important as remembering and recording the life of a person that received a traditional burial.
