This September, hundreds of franchise business leaders will gather in Washington, D.C. at the most important advocacy event of the year: IFA’s Annual Public Affairs Conference. Here are five reasons you need to be there:
PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS
Members of Congress want to know how legislative issues impact YOUR bottom line. At IFA’s Public Affairs Conference, you’ll have the opportunity to meet directly with your members of Congress and their staff.
NETWORK WITH YOUR PEERS
Not only do you get to make a difference on Capitol Hill, but let’s not forget the great networking opportunity that the Public Affairs Conference provides. The Public Affairs Conference gives you a great opportunity to engage your peers and share best practices as you look to grow your businesses.
The Leadership & Franchisee of the Year Awards Dinner recognizes outstanding franchisees and leaders among their industry peers. The Taste of Franchising brings together lawmakers, policymakers and their staff for a relaxing evening surrounded by mouth-watering dishes donated by sponsors to top off the day’s activities.
