Announcing the 2018 – 2020 NAC Election

Are you ready to step up to a leadership role in the Comfort Keepers® network? If so, submit your nomination to be a National Advisory Council (NAC) representative for 2018 - 2020.

These leaders within the community work collaboratively with CKFI to help define and steward the strategic direction of the Comfort Keepers brand. They act as a communication conduit to ensure we are aligned and working together to achieve success. They also bring ideas and thoughts from the franchisee community.

The next thing to consider is if the time right for you to become a part of the National Advisory Council and take an active role in carving out our network’s future. Start your self-evaluation by answering the following questions:

Are you committed to the aggregate betterment of the Brand and the network? Are you a progressive thinker and open to conversation and alternative viewpoints? Are you committed to growing a business in an industry that is experiencing significant disruption and change? Are you at a point in your business development where you can commit to travel to NAC meetings three times per year? (One meeting will coincide with the Leadership Conference.)

If you answer “yes” to these questions, we hope you will take the step forward and submit your nomination.

The process is very straightforward. Simply utilize the forms (linked below) and follow these guidelines:

Two different franchisees must submit the documentation nominating you as a candidate for the NAC by the established deadline. You should complete a short biography outlining your professional experiences and why you believe you should be considered for the NAC. To be considered for the NAC, you must be in “good standing,” i.e., not in a default status.
