The International Franchise Association’s Franchisee of the Year Award is an honor created to recognize outstanding IFA member-company, franchise establishment owner-operators. Identified by the parent company and presented during IFA’s annual Public Affairs Conference, it’s a great way to recognize and promote your system’s outstanding franchisees among their industry peers, and in follow-up coverage in association publications and press releases.
The IFA Public Affairs Conference brings more than 500 franchise business leaders together in Washington, D.C. to carry the key messages of franchising to lawmakers on Capitol Hill. A visit to your local Congressional representatives’ offices from you and your franchisees is a powerful way to help forward our advocacy efforts and further awareness about how franchising can contribute to economic recovery and job growth. The 2011 Franchisee of the Year Awards will be presented during a gala ceremony on the evening of Tuesday, September 13, as the Conference gets underway. We look forward to seeing you there!
