CFDA Home pageAbout CFDA

Every day, we face new experiences and challenges in funeral service. Some are specific to the business of burying the family and friends of the unconsolable. Still more often we find ourselves in a sea of questions about trusts, taxes, marketing and licensing, or the ever-changing requisites for employees, their insurance, their rights and their responsibilities. These solutions and their resources are the business of CFDA.

CFDA works hard to help members in all areas of funeral service/support including OSHA compliance areas, FTC regulations, preneed trust and preneed funeral insurance. Our bimonthly newsletter and educational seminars, presented periodically during the year and at the winter and summer meetings, address the issues that are at the forefront of your concerns.

NFDA serves as our link with the Federal government and represents funeral directors throughout the country when reviewing changes that affect our industry.
