Illinois Funeral Directors Association
3 Lawrence Square
Springfield, IL 62702
PAC Fund Details
Our political advocacy team looks out for the best interests of the funeral service profession across Illinois by maintaining a presence at the State Capitol, while federal issues are tackled in Washington D.C. in partnership with NFDA. Our strong political voice allows us to prevent bad bills from progressing, while avoiding changes in regulation that would add more red tape to funeral service. Together with members, we participate in calls to action to stop bad policy from affecting our profession. Our efforts help maintain one of the strongest funeral director licenses in the country.
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.
