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.
The FCCFA is proud to offer a workers’ compensation insurance program that among other things, can save members up to 20% on Workers’ Compensation premiums.
Natural Gas Discount Program
The FCCFA through its partnership with Infinite Energy offers great rates and services. Infinite Energy creates opportunities to save money, budget costs more efficiently and hedge against market risks for FCCFA members.
Medical Waste Disposal
Med Pro Disposal offers an alternative, low-cost solution to medical waste disposal for FCCFA members which will receive up to 50% off their first invoice as well as 2 months free access on Med Pro’s OSHA compliance training program.

The International Cemetery, Cremation & Funeral Association (ICCFA) and the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) provide extremely low pricing to FCCFA members. To purchase your music license, please visit the links below for more information.
Political Action Committee
The PAC raises money and is a focused source of support for legislative campaigns and causes that the Association feels would be most beneficial to the Industry and the public it serves. For further information, or to make a contribution, please contact Elizabeth Lane at firstname.lastname@example.org
When something happens that you need to know about quickly, the Association sends timely information on legislative matters, special meetings, death notices, and other vital information.
That’s the Association’s toll free number which is available to you as a member to answer questions or assist with your information needs.
Whether you have a job opening or are looking for a job, the Association’s Job Bank will immediately fax or mail you the latest list.
The website is your one stop source of information for the funeral industry in Florida.
