For more than one hundred years, funeral directors throughout Ohio have counted on the Ohio Funeral Directors Association as they've reached out to families in grief.

As one of the largest state associations for funeral directors in the nation, OFDA has become a conduit for promoting the funeral profession and a vital link between members.

More than 1000 Ohio funeral homes are part of the OFDA family, benefiting from a host of special services tailored exclusively for them.

Whether it's education and training, professional networking, or a voice in the legislature, OFDA has something for you. We invite you to take advantage of the many services OFDA offers and become part of the strongest family of professional funeral associations in the country.

Have the Talk of a Lifetime

You can help create a positive momentum toward reversing the trend of less memorialization by taking part in the new FAMIC consumer education campaign, Have the Talk of a Lifetime™.

Through your participation in the Have the Talk of a Lifetime campaign, you will help people in your community discover the unique life stories of the people who matter most to them. These discussions can help families and friends make important decisions about how they wish to remember and honor the lives of their loved ones through meaningful memorialization.

In addition to encouraging more meaningful memorialization, Have the Talk of a Lifetime will also help consumers understand the important role that funeral professionals play in the memorialization process and grow in your business.
