Veteran Boston news anchor Maria Stephanos will be the keynote speaker at the 2016 Northeast Regional meeting being held at the Sheraton Framingham Hotel & Conference Center on Tuesday, March 1. The program will include valuable information on the ServSafe® Food Safety program, with ServSafe® National Accounts Manager Kevin Scott also addressing the gathering. In addition, the program, which will begin with lunch and our exhibit hall at 11:30 AM, will feature DDIFO’s Massachusetts lobbyist Joe Giannino (Government Relations Group) along with Rhode Island DD franchisee lobbyist Dan Connors (Advocacy Solutions) speaking on a number of issues currently pending. A current elected official has been invited but has yet to confirm. Lastly, before the meeting, we will offer the ServSafe Manager Online Exam from 10 AM – 12 noon for those franchisees or their employees who have completed the course and are ready to take the exam to obtain their certification.
