THE FRANCHISE ACTION NETWORK ANNUAL MEETING & FALL LEADERSHIP MEETINGS

The annual IFA Washington, D.C. fly-in is now named the Franchise Action Network Annual Meeting. It is an integration of our grassroots advocacy program, the Franchise Action Network, with our annual fly-in, formerly known as the Public Affairs Conference. This meeting gives you the opportunity to meet with your representatives in Congress to discuss regulations that can affect your business. IFA will set up the meetings and prep you and guide you beforehand. Make your voice heard and help stop the attack on the franchise industry by taking action!

WHAT YOU’LL EXPERIENCE

  • A chance to meet with your Members of Congress
  • A chance to network with your peers from your congressional district 
  • A chance to make a difference!
