IFDF is made up of like-minded members with one goal in mind: keep funeral homes, crematories and cemeteries independent and relevant. Our membership dues are some of the lowest in the industry. We are proud to offer a variety of member benefits, including:
IFDF Master Trust
Our most popular member benefit, known as the I-Trust, provides members with assistance for obtaining and renewing the Preneed Business License, accounting and reporting procedures to simplify preneed program, flexible savings plan for the investment of non-trusted funds, and more.
Legislative Representation, Lobbying and Advocacy
Our members receive consistent and exclusive representation by IFDF in its lobbying efforts with the Florida Legislature and all funeral-related regulatory agencies in Florida.
Annual Conference and Professional Development
Every year, hundreds of members attend our annual conference. This multi-day event grants members access to educational sessions and courses, professional development, networking, exhibits, and more.
Continuing Education and Industry News
Our members enjoy state-approved Continuing Education courses held around the state and at the annual conference. In addition, IFDF hosts a webinar series covering professional development topics for non-owner funeral directors, crematory and removal staff.
Every quarter, members receive The Independent Reporter, which provides updates on IFDF activities and issues that impact the profession. Members may also sign up to receive the Independent Weekly, a weekly email newsletter containing association updates, industry news, member insights, and more.
To enhance member businesses, discounted products and services from Partnership Alliance Members are available for purchase, as well as IFDF branded materials through our online store. Members also have access to an online members portal and statewide member directory.
