San Diego, CA (PressExposure) February 27, 2009 -- "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 todayâs economy,â said AAFD President Peter Hanson. âThis yearâs conference at San Antonioâs beautiful Riverwalk features the annual Total Quality Franchising Awards Banquets and Gala and a number of other âcanât missâ events for franchisees.â
Some of those âcanât missâ 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.
âThe 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 youâll remember for many years to come,â said Hanson.
The AAFD's Fair Franchising Standards, Fair Franchising Seal, Trademark
Chapters, and emphasis on Marketplace Solutions led to the Association's recognition as a growing force in franchising. The AAFDâs Branded Partner programs add a new dimension to the value of AAFD membership. The AAFD provides a broad range of member services designed to help franchisees build market power , create legislative support of interest to franchisees, provide legal and financial support, and provide a wide range of general member benefits.
