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. 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. This event is FREE for franchisees.
