IFDA publishes a magazine, the Communiqué, six times each year, which is distributed to over 700 members, as well as other interested subscribers. This publication – for many members – is their major source of industry news. The magazine features articles and information on all areas of funeral service, including legislative information, continuing education opportunities, trends in the industry, new products/services and many other important aspects of funeral service in Iowa.

IFDA offers a variety of ad sizes and prices to meet your needs. See our rate card and 2020 Advertising Contract for more information. Questions? Contact our Communications Coordinator!

IFDA Membership Directory

The IFDA Membership Directory, a spiral-bound, user-friendly book, is distributed to all current IFDA members as a value-added service of their IFDA membership. It contains membership listings by city, last name, and by firm. It also contains information related to Association By-Laws and Policies and other information that funeral directors find vital to conducting business in Iowa, including county medical examiners. Near the back is a Buyer’s Guide, which lists all advertisers (including those who advertised in the Communiqué) and all convention exhibitors for a handy and valuable product and service reference guide. IFDA distributed 1,000 copies of the IFDA Resource Directory last year.

IFDA publishes the Membership Directory in the fall. Contact IFDA for more information.
