Should any franchise owners be in California just after the New Year, you may want to consider joining the Coalition of Franchisee Associations (CFA) in Sacramento on January 6 to celebrate the signing of the Franchise Relations Act.  We will celebrate this accomplishment at Cafeteria 15L from 5:30 – 7 PM with some of the legislators who were instrumental to its passage.  If you will be able to attend, please contact Misty Chally, Coalition of Franchisee Associations, 202-416-0270.  In other CFA news, we would again remind you to mark your calendars for the annual CFA Lobby Day Forum which this year will be held on March 17 – 18 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on Capital Hill in Washington DC.  Registration is now open for this exceptional annual program and more information is available here on the CFA Event Registration page.  The CFA Lobby Day is a great opportunity to talk with your elected representatives in Congress.
