Colorado Funeral Directors Association


Get Involved in CFDA

The strength of the Colorado Funeral Directors Association is based on the knowledge, time and resources of th
e members it serves. The association needs the support of volunteers from its member establishments to continue its objectives.

CFDA wants to reā€engage ALL funeral service practitioners in Colorado to support the profession through participating in association activities. We are issuing a challenge to your funeral establishment and all employees to get involved in a CFDA Committee. 

You must be currently employed at a CFDA member firm to participate on a committee. Communication is handled primarily through email and committees may meet in person or by conference call several times throughout the year. 

One contact hour of continuing education credit will be awarded by the Colorado Funeral Service Board for individuals who actively participate on a CFDA committee.
