One member is appointed by the General Assembly on the recommendation of the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, and one member is appointed by the General Assembly on the recommendation of the Speaker of the House. All members serve four-year terms.
The Commission is responsible for the regulation and supervision of cemeteries, cemetery management organizations, cemetery sales organizations, cemetery brokers and individual pre-need cemetery salespeople licensed under the laws of North Carolina.
