Changes for Celebrants’ body


A new look has been unveiled for the Association of Independent Celebrants (AOIC).

Now a limited by guarantee company and the only registered trade association for celebrants in the UK, the AOIC represents celebrants’ views at Government decision-making level.

It has also forged strong links within the funeral sector, with SAIF’s Chief Executive Terry Tennens a guest speaker at the Association’s 2018 conference.

During the pandemic the AOIC has offered advice to members and, with SAIF, lobbied to ensure celebrants were accepted as key workers by the Government. It also shared best practice regarding virtual ceremonies and new technology.

Phil Spicksley, AOIC’s Executive Chairman, said: “It is vital that, as a trade body, we look at offering members as much support as possible – that may be talking to each other, sharing ideas or representing our profession on a national level.”
