Vision for the Future: NFDA Listened to YOU!

Based on the comments received, the Executive Board has revised the proposal and is, once again, asking for members to share their comments. A brief version of the proposal, has been posted on the NFDA website. Please review the most current proposal (as of 8/19/15) for full details and access to a short feedback submission form. The comment period ends Monday, August 31 at noon CST.
Stay An Extra Day In Indy
For a limited time, some NFDA hotels for the 2015 International Convention & Expo in Indianapolis will have rooms available on Friday, October 16, Saturday, October 17 and Wednesday, October 21. Consider coming in early or staying later in Indy: perhaps you would like to attend a pre-convention seminar on Saturday, participate in the Funeral Service Foundation Golf Classic on Sunday, or attend the The Fifth Quarter closing party at Lucas Oil Stadium on Wednesday. Visit the housing bureau website or call the housing bureau (U.S. registrants: 800-967-8852; international registrants: +1-847-996-5832) to extend your stay or book a new reservation. If a room is not available for the dates you wish, check with the housing bureau regularly; rooms often become available due to cancellations.
