The International Franchise Association (IFA; Washington) has elected Clint Ehlers, franchisee at FASTSIGNS of Willow Grove and FASTSIGNS of Cherry Grove, to join its board of directors. He will serve an initial term of three years.
Ehlers, a resident of Lower Gwynedd, PA, will join nine other new directors on the recently expanded board of the IFA, the franchising sector’s only global trade association.
“You have to be involved to affect change. Without the direct involvement and interference from members of the franchising community from franchisors to franchisees and the IFA, our industry would be merely a shell of its successful self,” said Ehlers. “The best protection I can offer my businesses is to have a voice at the table regarding policies affecting how I operate. Most people forget that Congress works for us, and they need to hear what is important to us, both at the state and federal level. A thriving business community is beneficial to all.”
Ehlers has been an active member of IFA’s Franchisee Forum for five years. At least three times, he has testified at legislative hearings at the Pennsylvania state capitol in Harrisburg, and he has also testified before the House Committee on Labor in Washington.
