Join us at the Tinley Park Convention Center in Tinley Park, IL for the 2016 IFDA Annual Convention!
Keynote Gerry O'Brion Nationally recognized marketing and branding expert has worked on several billion dollar brands and distilled that experience into growth strategies you can implement immediately.
Learn new skills and upgrade your current ones. No matter how long we've been in the biz there's always something we need to learn!
Network with your peers. Networking is a huge part of your professional success. The convention is by far the best opportunity to network and build your career.
Meet with vendors and suppliers. Our exhibitors and sponsors are industry experts and solution-providers who truly know what is happening in the funeral care world - and they have answers to your questions.
Hear from the experts. Our speakers are proven business leaders, strategists, practitioners and peers. Many of them are current funeral care professionals, others are well-respected industry leaders who know what you need to know.
Have fun! Let's be honest - the Annual Convention is a lot of learning, networking and exploring of ideas packed into a short amount of time, but most of all, it's fun!
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.
