NFDA Members to Share Thoughts on Association’s Future Direction
Posted: March 30, 3015
Taking time to their evaluate mission, structure and operations is something associations should do on a regular basis to ensure they are best meeting members' needs. To ensure NFDA is able to uphold a standard of excellence in service to you, it will hold a meeting, "Vision for the Future," at the end of April. There, 35 leaders within the profession will proactively examine NFDA's governance structure to determine whether it is effectively and efficiently designed to support the association's mission and vision for the future of funeral service. During the last 133 years, NFDA has ensured that hundreds of thousands of funeral directors have had access to products and services that help them serve their families with the highest degree of excellence. We look forward to an engaging dialogue next month so that NFDA can continue to serve you for another 133 years.
