COVID-19 State Securities & Franchise Administrators and IFA Updates

March 27, 2020

The North America Security Administrators Association (“NASAA”) is the primary actor for issues related to nationwide and state securities, franchise, and business opportunity questions and issues. NASAA has established “as a resource page to collect COVID-19-related updates from state and provincial securities regulators. At this time, NASAA is not aware of any state or provincial securities regulator that is not providing services. If you any questions, please contact the relevant state or provincial securities regulator. Contact information is available here.“


The ongoing information from this site can be helpful to you and to many of your franchisees.


As mentioned in my earlier email, critical and informative Coronavirus updates and franchise system related ideas and information can be found on the International Franchise Association (“IFA”) website Among other things, IFA is working diligently to provide essential information regarding Coronavirus to our members. Please frequently check our dedicated webpage for the latest information from the CDC, business resources and the steps IFA is taking to provide relief and support to the franchise community through Congressional action.


Let me know if you have any questions or need any help.
