NCASEF Board Members Reelected; Officers Forming New Communications Committee

Elections were held last week in Atlantic City at the final NCASEF Board of Directors meeting of 2019 to select officers to serve during the 2020-2021 term.

Jay Singh will return as Board Chairman, a role he has held since 2017 when he took over as Acting Chairman. He was then elected Board Chairman for the 2018-2019 term. “The position of Chairman is one I do not take lightly, as it comes with much responsibility,” said Singh. “At the forefront of everything I do as Chair, and we do as a Board, is ensuring our actions are geared towards maintaining the success of the 7-Eleven brand as well as safeguarding the welfare of each franchisee we represent.”

Michael Jorgensen, Executive Vice Chairman and Jaspreet Dhillon, Treasurer, were the other officers re-elected for the 2020-2021 term.

“We thank the membership for their trust. Over the past two years, this team has worked hard to transform the National Coalition – to raise its profile – so that we can truly leverage the collective strength of our members for their benefit.” said Jorgensen. “This election means that work can continue and we can further strengthen this organization for the next generation of franchisee leaders.”

“We invite any franchisee who is interested in having a greater say in the future of the National Coalition and of this company to join their local Franchise Owners Association.” said Singh.

One of the team’s top priorities is creating a communications committee. For over a year, the board has tried to establish an open dialogue with corporate headquarters.

“Transparent communication and collaboration between franchisor and franchisees is critical to move this brand forward so all can benefit. We want to tap the brightest among our members and get them on this committee so we can speak with a strong and unified voice and help shape the future of 7-Eleven,” said Jorgensen. “We especially want the committee to include those whose thoughts and opinions differ from this leadership team. Inclusive debate in a constructive environment will help us all improve.”
