Pete Souch and Bill Costello were honored at this year's All Members Meeting for their commitment to the success of the Association.
The Leadership Award was presented to Pete Souch, recognizing his contributions as the Association Treasurer and chairman of the communications committee. Under Pete’s leadership in the past year, we formalized our financial and budget processes, and improved communications outreach to members through a new website and monthly newsletter. He also spearheaded this year’s sponsorship efforts that raised $100,000 to help cover the cost of the annual meeting.
Bill Costello received the Legacy Award, which is presented to the member who has demonstrated a long-term commitment to OFFA and dedication to its growth and success. Bill is a long-time member of OFFA, and has been through many of the milestones we’ve experienced as an organization. A solid and unshakeable leader, and chair of the Strategic Committee, Bill steered us to focus on issues that impact the franchise community as a whole, and ultimately to success for the brand.
Congratulations to Pete and Bill on their awards, and thank you for your support and dedication to the Association.
