Watch for the announcement this week of our next member meeting in Chicago on November 13 featuring a presentation by franchise attorney Michael Boxerman. The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare and will focus on a number of important franchise issues as well as a host of employment law issues such as the new Illinois nursing mother law. The announcement flier will be sent within the next few days, but be sure to mark your calendars now to attend the DDIFO member meeting on November 13 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare.  Registration is available now on the DDIFO website.

And, next week in Chicago, the Coalition of Franchisee Associations (CFA) will host its first Legal Symposium at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place. This first annual event promises to be a “must attend” event for franchisees from all brands across the QSR spectrum. Check it out at the CFA Event site.
