Steering Committee


We asked industry veterans from successful franchise systems to serve on our planning committee. Working together, we will populate panels with industry veterans who are subject matter experts. No speaker will pay for the opportunity to speak and each will have been vetted and specifically targeted by our steering committee.

The members of the Steering Committee for the 2013 SpringBoard Event are:
