Welcome

Founded in 1880, the Michigan Funeral Directors Association is the nation’s oldest organization of funeral professionals.

MFDA seeks to enhance the value of funeral service and the profession through government advocacy, public information, professional education, and member communication programs. Its sister, the MFDA Services Corporation offers members employee benefit options, as well as the state’s premier prepaid funeral financing plans.

Education Measure Introduced in Senate
--Senate Bill 651
On November 8, Senator Rick Jones (R-Grand Ledge) introduced Senate Bill 651, the proposal to require a bachelor's degree for initial mortuary science licensure (beginning with those seeking licensure in 2023), as well as 4 hours per year of continuing education for license renewal, beginning with 2025 renewals.

In addition, the measure includes a provision specifically granting the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs rule making authority regarding funeral establishments' licensed managers. This provision was included to clarify any ambiguity regarding such authority.

The bill has been referred to the Senate Regulatory Reform Committee chaired by Senator Tony Rocca (R-Sterling Heights), and no hearings have yet been scheduled as the legislature is adjourned for a two week recess.
