Together we embark on a new and prosperous journey...

At this 11th year of the Franchise Brokers Association Conference & Expo we will officially launch the new FBA Brand.  This isn't as much about us and our new 'look' as it is about all of you - our members and friends.

We have begun forging a new path and we want to prepare you for what is coming and how it will directly impact your business.

As FBA members, we educate and mentor our clients through their journey of franchise discovery. You are the guides. We will use our time together this November to introduce our new initiatives,  align our needs, and engage strategies so that we can be as effective as possible in 2020 and beyond.

Conference Course: Public Policy Risks Growing for Franchising

IFA's Vice President, Federal Government Relations - Special Presentation

As America braces for the pivotal 2020 election, franchising now faces new independent contractor and joint employer liability threats in state legislatures, Congress and the courts. Furthermore, franchises continue to receive unfair treatment by city councils that enact new minimum wage and predictive scheduling laws. This session will make you current on the labor and employment policy landscape – and you will hear how IFA is fighting for your business.  

Michael Layman is Vice President, Federal Government Relations for the International Franchise Association.

He develops public policy initiatives and builds coalitions in support of franchising, and monitors federal agencies and Congress to identify threats to, and opportunities for, the franchise industry. Layman is a Capitol Hill veteran, has delivered speeches around the country on public policy issues, and has been interviewed by numerous national publications.
