NFDA Launches New Publication for Students
The National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) has launched Director.edu, a new electronic publication that will help mortuary science students gain insight into making their career choice a reality. This quarterly newsletter will include articles from noted industry experts, mortuary science program educators, recent graduates and students.
“NFDA wanted to share information with students and recent graduates that goes beyond what they learn in textbooks and in the classroom,” said NFDA Publications Editor-in-Chief Ed Defort. “We hope that the information in Director.edu will give students ‘real world’ advice that will help them make the transition from mortuary science school to internship to funeral home staff member.”
NFDA student members will automatically receive Director.edu; the association will also work with mortuary science program leaders to ensure the publication is shared with students who may not be members of NFDA.
Like the Memorial Business Journal, NFDA will not solicit advertising for Director.edu to solidify the integrity of the publication as a newsletter.
“This is an exciting new endeavor for NFDA and I would welcome feedback on topics you’d like to see in future issues of Director.edu,” said Defort.
Defort can be reached at [email protected] or 800-228-6332.
There are two NFDA membership options for students enrolled in mortuary science education programs: the standard membership is $35 and includes a postal mailed copy of The Director magazine; the digital student membership is available at no charge. The digital membership does not include a postal mailed copy of The Director; instead, students may access the digital edition of The Director via the NFDA website. For information about how to join, visit www.nfda.org/join.
