Dear Franchisee Member:
The Annual Meeting of Members of the Jimmy John’s Franchisee Association (JJFA, Inc. a California Mutual Benefit Corporation) (the “Association”) will be held on October 9, 2017, at approximately 8:30 am, central time, during the JJFA Convention & Supplier Showcase at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa, located at 9800 Hyatt Resort Drive, San Antonio, Texas, 78251. At the Annual Meeting, the Franchisee Members will vote on the following matters:
1. To elect three at–large (non-officer) nominees to the Association’s Board of Directors, each for a term of two years; and
2. To transact any other business that properly comes before the meeting or any adjournment thereof.
All current Franchisee Members shall be eligible to vote for the eligible Director positions, with each Franchisee Member entitled to one vote per dues-paying store (up to a maximum of 20 stores) for each electable position. The cumulative votes of each Franchisee Member may be allocated to all or any of the nominees. For example, if a Franchisee Member has 10 dues-paying stores, it will be entitled to 30 votes (10 per store per electable position) and may allocate all 30 votes to one person, or split the 30 votes among two or three of the electable positions, as the Franchisee Member sees fit. Ballots will be made available in advance of the Annual meeting through the Annual Convention & Supplier Showcase mobile application.
