With Convention just around the corner, anticipation is running high! We asked our board members what they’re most looking forward to this year. From networking to learning to connecting with industry peers, here’s what they had to say:
“I am particularly excited and looking forward to the 2018 CFA Convention due to the stellar line up of speakers and topics. I look forward to facilitating a roundtable session on how to make the most of your CFA membership, a CEO break out session, and to hosting several guest speaker sessions. Most of all, I look forward to seeing friends and colleagues and to meeting new members and friends. Networking and learning at the CFA Convention is top tier and I always come away with new ideas and knowledge.”
– Dawn Mucci, Lice Squad.com
“The CFA Convention is a great way to connect with the industry, explore new ideas, and discover opportunities.”
– Hadi Chahin, Mary Brown’s Inc.
“The CFA National Convention is about sharing ideas. I’m most looking forward to re-connecting with friends and colleagues from the franchising industry – and meeting a few new people, too!”
– Clark Harrop, McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada Limited
“As a member of the Board of Directors for the CFA, I can say that the CFA has been working hard to support our members, including making changes to the lead generation platforms and hosting the Toronto FranchiseCanada Show free of charge to visitors. I am hoping to get some feed back from members on their successes and where we can help more. Franchising is a big part of the Canadian economy, and I am looking forward to many more years of success.”
– Sebastian Fuschini, Pizza Pizza
“I cannot wait for the Convention this year! It looks like there will be some great speakers but I like the roundtable discussions the most, as you get to hear views from other franchisors and take home some good tips for your own franchise program. The networking is another plus, along with meeting with all the suppliers in the Marketplace. Will never miss the Convention and looking forward to another great one!”
– Joel Friedman, Pumpernickel’s
“It’s not just another convention – it’s a powerful meeting of the franchise business sector. Each member, whether a seasoned franchisor or a new member, has the opportunity to exchange information, to freely share ideas, experiences, and knowledge, and to learn from each other. I always come away thinking, ‘wow, that program or idea could work for us.'”
– Terry Hould, ServiceMaster of Canada Limited
