The Franchise Action Network (FAN) Annual Meeting is IFA's biggest advocacy event, giving members the opportunity to meet with their representatives in Congress to discuss topics that can affect their business. During their time in Washington, DC, attendees also celebrated brands that provided community support at the Franchising Gives Back Awards Dinner, honored outstanding franchise owners at the Franchisee of the Year Awards dinner, attended special educational programming for franchise owners and heard from exciting keynote speakers. This year also included our first ever Franchising Pride Council reception, which highlighted the inclusion of diversity in franchising and serves as a network for LGBTQ small business owners.
