IFA’s new, greatly expanded franchise sales management and compliance program will help IFA members take proactive steps to reduce risks, manage growth, and build a stronger, healthier franchise system.    IFA FRAN-GUARD™ covers both the legal and business aspects of compliance with a series of modules designed for CEOs and senior executives, franchise development professionals, in-house counsel and franchise attorneys, paralegals and compliance managers. Attendance at one of these programs will earn 300 CFE Education credits for participants in the Certified Franchise Executives program.

We are proud to offer the IFA FRAN-GUARD™ program at Springboard for the 2nd year in a row. FRAN-GUARD™ will be held on September 25 from 9AM-3PM in advance of the regular Springboard programming. The additional fee is $450 per attendee, which goes entirely to the IFA.
