As one of the largest state associations for funeral directors in the nation, OFDA has become a conduit for promoting the funeral profession and a vital link to having a voice in the legislative process.
The Ohio Funeral Directors Association Political Action Committee (OFDA PAC) is a key component of OFDA's state legislative lobbying efforts. A misconception about OFDA PAC is that member dues go toward funding the PAC. This is not accurate. OFDA PAC can only be successful if members make personal contributions directly to OFDA PAC.
