Every day, we face new experiences and challenges in funeral service. Some are specific to the business of providing funeral service to the people in our communities. Still more often we find ourselves in a sea of questions about trusts, taxes, marketing and licensing, or the ever-changing requisites for employees, their insurance, their rights and their responsibilities. These solutions and their resources are the business of CFDA.
