Benefits of Joining


As a member of the Association, you receive valuable benefits not available elsewhere to help you, your profession and the families you serve. Here are some of those benefits: 

Impact over laws and rules governing the profession
The lobbying team has been in place for many years providing continuity and insight found nowhere else. The team either works independently or in coalition with other groups such as cemeterians, pre-need representatives, funeral industry consultants, and other public interest groups, depending upon the issue. The laws and rules affect your profession more than anything else; membership puts and keeps you in the loop. 

Death Statistics Report
The FCCFA Death Statistics Report is available to members on a quarterly basis. This report provides year-to-date information for the entire state and allows the user to sort the data by county or counties. 

Member Benefit Programs: Below are a few of the programs that can help you save money and run a better business. 

Natural Gas Discount Program

Infinite Energy is now Gas South! The FCCFA through its partnership with Gas South offers great rates and services. Gas South creates opportunities to save money, budget costs more efficiently and hedge against market risks for FCCFA members.
