#NFDAinDC: The 2016 Advocacy Summit
April 25, 2016
NFDA members from around the country will gather in Washington, D.C., this week for the 25th annual Advocacy Summit. We’re thrilled to have so many funeral directors joining us in our nation’s capitol this week to advocate for the rights of funeral service professionals and, most importantly, the families they serve. No one can share the story of funeral service better than NFDA members.
You can learn more about the issues on which NFDA and its members will be advocating on the Advocacy Summit website, www.nfda.org/advocacysummit.
