Its Our Time: Partner for Success!

Its Our Time: Partner for Success!  We look to keep the momentum going toward true reform being championed and advanced by the leadership of the AAFD, legislators, and regulators who understand the struggles of franchisees. During the three-day leadership conference, you will hear from some of those lawmakers and regulators and have an opportunity to participate in workshops to contribute to making a difference. It is now more important than ever that franchisees come together and work collaboratively to ensure fairness in franchising!

We have a great program lined up to include speakers from the U.S. Senate, highest levels of the Federal Trade Commission, top franchisee attorneys in addition to many other special and exciting events (It is the AAFDs 30th birthday after all!).
