Legislative Reception

We are excited to once again host the OFDA Legislative Reception on Tuesday, February 28th at the Ohio Statehouse. This is a great 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! 

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