Jewish Funeral Directors of America Affiliates with International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association
Sterling, VA — The Jewish Funeral Directors of America (JFDA) and the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association (ICCFA) have announced an affiliation agreement.
“The affiliation with ICCFA begins a new and exciting time for the JFDA,” said JFDA President Albert Bloomfield. “Our members will now be entitled to full membership in the ICCFA and to the wealth of benefits that all ICCFA members enjoy. In addition, JFDA members will continue to receive the many benefits that accompany a JFDA membership.”
The JFDA will transfer information and files from its offices in Chicago, Illinois, to the ICCFA office in Sterling, Virginia, with the goal of completing the transition by October 31, 2011.
“We are pleased and honored to affiliate with the members of JFDA,” said ICCFA President Ken Varner, CCFE. “This is really the best of both worlds because the JFDA will continue to function as an autonomous organization while the ICCFA expands its mission of representing every segment of the funeral services profession. JFDA members will be eligible to serve on the ICCFA Board of Directors and for appointment to officer positions and committee assignments. There are many people in both associations that we should thank, but on behalf of the ICCFA, I want to thank David and Irwin Shipper and Immediate Past President Kevin Daniels for making this happen.”
Founded in 1887, the ICCFA is the only international trade association representing all segments of the cemetery, cremation, funeral and memorialization profession. Its membership is composed of more than 7,500 cemeteries, funeral homes, crematories, memorial designers and related businesses worldwide.
