Each year, IFDA members gather in Springfield to meet with government officials and advocate for the funeral profession.
IFDA maintains an active presence in Springfield and Washington D.C. with resources that include full-time staff and lobbyists. With new laws being introduced on an almost daily basis, IFDA has made it our responsibility to track these new laws and evaluate their impact on funeral service. With the assistance of our lobbyists, IFDA hopes to best meet the needs of members now and in the future.
In addition to our strong lobbying efforts, the association also maintains a robust working relationship with the state's regulating body - IDFPR. The IFDA Board and staff actively participate in legislative and regulatory meetings and serve as a voice for the industry on policy and regulatory initiatives.
At the Illinois Funeral Directors Association, our mission is to provide the resources to support our members in being professionally, ethically, and operationally superior, and to advocate for the funeral service profession.
