Legislative Reception

We are excited to once again host the OFDA Legislative Reception on Tuesday, April 9, 2024, at the Ohio Statehouse, Rotunda, 5:00 - 7:00 PM. This is an excellent opportunity for members to speak with members of the Ohio House of Representatives and the Ohio Senate to discuss legislation affecting funeral professionals across the state!

Join fellow OFDA members for this opportunity to make your voice in funeral service heard! 

Exciting news for 2024! OFDA is offering a guided tour of the Ohio Statehouse prior to the scheduled legislative brief. Attend both events and receive 1 FULL hour of continuing education in Laws & Rules (approved with the State of Ohio Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors).
