** Elections to be held in November for MFAC Representatives for the Southeast and West Regions **

 Since its inception in 2015, the Mathnasium Franchise Advisory Committee (MFAC) has successfully served as one of many communication channels between HQ and the Mathnasium franchise network, providing feedback and insights about your concerns that have helped shape and drive initiatives for the benefit of all.

By design, four of the initial eight members were to serve one-year terms, enabling us to achieve staggered two-year terms going forward. In 2017, the following franchisees will rotate off MFAC: Sam Younis (Southeast), Reggie Kellum (West), John Labuda (multi-center HQ appointee), and John Opalko (single-center HQ appointee).

HQ will appoint one multi- and one single-center owner to MFAC to replace Mr. Labuda and Mr. Opalko. Elections will be held in November for Southeast and West region representatives to fill the positions vacated by Mr. Younis and Mr. Kellum.

Franchisees in the West and Southeast regions: this is where you come in. If you would like to be an MFAC member, now is the time to make your voice heard!

To qualify, franchisees must fill out the Nominee Profile Questionnaire, submit the Questionnaire to nominations@mathnasium.com by Friday, October 28, and meet the criteria outlined below:

  • Franchisee must be a single-center owner with an open Center in one of the states/provinces below:
    • West: Arizona, British Columbia (Canada), California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington

  • Center must have opened prior to November 1, 2014, and must have had a minimum revenue of $182,000 in the 2015 calendar year.

Voting runs from November 8–11; West- and Southeast-region franchisees will receive their voting links via email on November 8.
