Re: Greater Southwestern KFC Franchisee Association
All Franchisees and Representatives,
It is that time of year again! As president of the Greater Southwestern Kentucky Fried Chicken Franchisee Association Inc. (SWKFC) I would like to take the time to reach out to everyone in our region and encourage each of you to join again this year. The association encompasses the states of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri. In writing today I would like to let you know more about your association as well as how we function and also the positions that are available to be held.
The SWKFC is one of seven regions in the US and we are members of the Association of Kentucky Fried Chicken Franchisee (AKFCF). On behalf of our members we work proactively to identify and respond to your interests and concerns, quickly uniting our collective voice to meet the challenges of operating World Class Restaurants. We also work to advance the learning and development of our members, their ARL’s, RGM’s and team members to operate businesses that grow profitability by tapping into and sharing the considerable experience and knowledge of our members and communicating information and delivering high quality education that meets our members needs.
There are many areas that the SWKFC can use your expertise. We encourage all of our members to be active in the association as it is your involvement that makes our region strong. The sharing and learning’s that we gather from each other, from the longest standing franchisee to the newest member are priceless. The current positions are listed below.
State Directors: Each of the eight states has two representatives. This position is a two year term.
Officers: Immediate past President, President, Vice President, Second Vice President and Secretary-Treasurer These positions are all two year terms and there is a natural progression through the ranks for each position excluding the Secretary-Treasurer.
Additional Committee Members: We also have additional positions that are held within the region. They include 2- NCAC members, 2- OEC members, 1- NPC member, 1- GAC member and shadows for the NCAC and the OEC committees.
As you can see there are many opportunities for everyone to be involved. If you have any interest in these positions I would encourage you to speak to one of your state representatives or come to our next meeting. I can say from personal experience that being a part of the SWKFC and also serving on the committees has helped me and my business immensely.
If you get an opportunity you can go to the SWKFC website http://www.swkfcfran.org/ to find out more on our association or visit the AKFCF website http://www.akfcf.com/ to learn more of what your national association is about.
Thank you all for your time. On behalf of the SWKFC we wish the best to each of you, your families and your business as we head through the back half of the summer. We look forward to either speaking with you soon or seeing you in Marco Island, Florida on October 1st.
Greg Atwell, President
