Happy IFA anniversary to a vital member of our team- Josh Merin! Josh serves as our Vice President of International Relations, and Chief of Staff. During his career, he has traveled all over the world, and worked tirelessly to help the franchise community expand internationally. To celebrate his 7th year at IFA, we sat down with Josh to ask a few questions about his time at IFA, and all the experiences he's had along the way.
We are so excited to introduce the newest member of the IFA membership team- Julie Dychkewich! Julie is serving as our Manager of Development & Member Services, and is here to make sure our members have the best IFA experience possible.
One of the greatest benefits of being an IFA member is the networking. We give our members many unique opportunities to meet with franchise professionals who are willing to share their tips and tricks with you, and people you can build long lasting relationships with.
Wow, what a great second day at MITcon. We got started early, but the energy of the conference got us through! We began the day with another insightful series of roundtable discussions, during which we all got to discuss our own business challenges, and get council from our peers.

What a great day it was at MITcon! We learned invaluable information from the speakers, learning labs, roundtables, and our peers. The day started off with a welcome from MITcon Committee Chairwoman, Sherri Fishman, and MITcon emcee, Jack Monson. Sherri and Jack got the crowd pumped up for the day, and got us all excited for the programming to come.
