General Notices​​​

As a notice to all our constituents, the Kentucky Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors has experienced significant changes in the staffing of the Board office over the course of the past several months. Please join us in welcoming Christi Moffett as the Executive Director. Julie Pavlova-Peoples provides continuity as the Administrative Secretary. We have also upgraded our telecommunications and computer systems, assured their connectivity with the state network, and hope the former issues with receiving and returning communications are now over.
