IFDG'S ANNUAL CONFERENCE WILL BE AUGUST 3-6, 2014, IN JEKYLL ISLAND, GA    

MORE INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND BELOW OR ON OUR MEETINGS PAGE

 

Welcome to the Independent Funeral Directors of Georgia website. Please take a few minutes to look over our many different activities we have planned throughout the year. We feel we have assimilated a like minded organization that supports, promotes, and encourages independent funeral homes across Georgia.

Your membership allows us to provide you and your firm with a strong and effective representation in our state. We work on a daily basis to educate our representatives and our members. Every issue will be presented to our members for their input, your opinion matters to IFDG. Your membership also allows you to benefit from training, meetings, and educational resources, as well as you receive substantial discounts from our partner organizations. We keep our members informed of current events via emails, our website, newsletters, during our roundtables and our summer conference.

Our strongest attribute is the enduring friendships created throughout our organization. These friendships allow us to discuss areas of opportunities in each of our markets. We not only benefit each other, we enhance the families whom we serve daily.

Thank you for taking the time to review our website, we are thankful for our members, our vendor friends, and we welcome new members!
