By Published On: February 12th, 2019

At the 2018 AAFD Conference and Franchisee Leadership Summit, we made great progress on moving forward with our action task forces. We even adopted two new task forces! In case you missed it, each of these task forces is designed to address and find solutions to a major challenge in the franchising community.

I am writing you to make a personal appeal. We need members and interested franchisee leaders to step up and participate in our task forcesin order to create positive change for the benefit of franchise owners. (AAFD Franchisee LegaLine Attorneys and Suppliers are also most welcome!)

CLICK THIS LINK to review all seven of our action task forces and to sign up to participate in one or more action task force.

I know this is a big ask, but I believe you can be an agent of positive change for all your fellow franchisees!
