We are excited to announce that we have opened registration for our 2024 Summit themed, “Success through Collaboration”, where our franchising community comes together to focus on collaboration, education, and legislation. The Summit is our annual gathering point where we come together as a united community. Engage with peers, explore common challenges, and share solutions. Return to your chapter and business equipped with new strategies, insights, and a renewed sense of purpose. With your feedback and an eye on developing franchise industry trends, we have made key enhancements and updates that include:

  • Legislative Focus: Stay ahead of the curve with the latest legislation affecting franchisees, understand its implications and learn how to act.
  • Development Opportunities: Personal and professional development opportunities to help you and your business succeed.
  • Network Building: Form invaluable connections with other franchisees to leverage the AAFD’s extensive network, including suppliers and franchise attorneys.
  • Expert Insights: Gain inspiration and valuable knowledge from our lineup of professional speakers.
  • Local Engagement: This year, we’re welcoming franchisees from the greater St. Louis area, extending our reach and potential for making new connections.

Your participation at our 2024 Summit makes an enormous difference, not only for the AAFD, but for your fellow franchisees and the collective voice we share.  Take this opportunity to make a meaningful impact in the franchising world and register today!
