San Diego, CA…
The American Association of Franchisees and Dealers will host this year’s Franchisee Leadership Summit and Annual Meeting at the Crown Plaza Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas, April 29 to May 2.
“Our annual summit has traditionally been a great event for franchisees and franchisee association leaders to meet, network, share ideas and learn how being part of a franchise can empower them, particularly in today’s economy,” said AAFD President Peter Hanson. “This year’s conference at San Antonio’s beautiful Riverwalk features the annual Total Quality Franchising Awards Banquets and Gala and a number of other ‘can’t miss’ events for franchisees.”
Some of those ‘can’t miss’ activities include the following seminars:
The Power of the Network in Financially Difficult Times
The 5 Top Reasons Associations Succeed or Fail
Mastering Cooperation and Unity
How to Really Negotiate a Fair Franchise Agreement
Best Practice Round Tables
The conference will also include the Franchisee Leadership Council Session, The AAFD Market Power Trade Show and AAFD Annual conference luncheon among other traditional events.
“The Total Quality Franchising: Harnessing the Power of Your Collective Voice truly is an event everyone associated with a franchise should attend. Beyond what you learn, just meeting and getting to know other franchisees and franchisee association leadership is an invaluable experience. And to do it in a great place like San Antonio is really something you’ll remember for many years to come,” said Hanson.
