2022 IFA Leadership Summit & Franchise Action Network (FAN) Annual Meeting 

This September, the power, value, and opportunity of franchising will be on full display in Washington, DC, because franchise leaders like you made the choice to protect, enhance and promote the franchise business model. Leaders like you know all too well franchising is a catalyst for entrepreneurship. Some call it the most democratic wealth-creation tool in human history. However, our future success is only partly in our hands. To ensure a bright future for all, elected officials and regulators need to hear from YOU.

Join C-level executives, franchise owners and supplier partners for an exclusive gathering in the nation’s capital this September. At the Leadership Summit and Franchise Action Network (FAN) Annual Meeting, you will learn from national leaders and policymakers on critical issues ranging from the current labor shortages and supply chain challenges to the continued threat to local franchises on joint employer matters via both legislation and regulation. More importantly, however, our national leaders will learn from you: the job creators who make our nation’s--and their constituent’s--success possible.

As part of the Leadership Summit, join your fellow franchising leaders in the halls of Congress for a day of advocacy to ensure franchising has all the tools and resources needed to build a strong future. Making the investment of your time in advocacy pays incredible dividends as evidenced by franchisee inclusion in the pandemic stimulus and this year’s defeat of key nominations that would have serious negative impacts on the franchise business model.
