Don Daniels was recently inaugurated as president of the Alabama Funeral Directors Association at the 127th Annual Convention in Point Clear, Ala.

Daniels has served on the AFDA Board since 2010, serving as secretary, treasurer, and vice president.

He also currently serves as Alabama’s representative to the National Funeral Directors Association Policy Board.

The NFDA and AFDA both serve as organizations to better funeral service, funeral providers, and funeral consumers.

The AFDA is made up of 200 funeral homes across the state of Alabama.

Daniels and his family own and operate four funeral homes across the state. Their funerl homes are located in Greenville, Camden, Columbiana and Calera. They also operate a cemetery in Childersburg.

“I believe having four locations, and a cemetery definitely helps give us a more rounded view of funeral service,” Daniels said. “It’s really an honor to lead and work with our fellow funeral professionals. What we do is so vital to our community and to humanity. I’m proud to be a part of the AFDA and of funeral service.”
