We have two meetings that members will want to attend before summer arrives – the first will be held at the Holiday Inn, Boardman, Ohio on May 21. Registration for this meeting, which will feature franchisee attorney Pete Silverman, a partner with the firm Shulman, Loop & Kendrick in Toledo, Ohio, is now available on the DDIFO website. Attorney Silverman will address the plethora of new and coming changes in the operation of the National Labor Relations Board. A few weeks thereafter, we will host our next meeting to coincide with the DDBR Community Foundation’s annual Lobster bake fundraiser in Kennebunkport, Maine. Our members meeting (preceded by the DDIFO quarterly meeting of the Board of Directors) will be held at the Hampton Inn, in Saco, Maine and will also run from 12 Noon until 3:00 PM. We hope many of you will be able to attend and we look forward to seeing you at our meeting and again at the Foundation lobster bake. We would also remind you to mark your calendars for the 2015 DDIFO National Conference on September 21 and 22 at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, and consider who you would like to nominate for inclusion in the DDIFO Hall of Fame. Nomination papers will be available soon!
