We hold regular Regional EWIF meetings around the UK to make sure that each and every one of our members have the opportunity to network and meet with industry experts to gain extra knowledge and advice as well as share theirs with the other attendees.

 The meetings are FREE for our members and you can attend as many as you like, and in any region. It doesn’t just have to be the region where you’re based! As with our membership, the meetings are open to both men and women within the industry, after all, we all work together to help encourage more women into franchising!

Get in touch with your local branch to find out what’s happening near you.


Give back to the community by volunteering your time to help the EWIF mission and make a positive difference to others. There are many ways you can get involved: mentor a prospective/new franchisor, volunteer an hour or two on the EWIF stand at various exhibitions, attend the regional meetings and help grow the knowledge about EWIF in your local area, and much more.

The ins’ and outs’

Membership of EWIF is £140 per annum per company from the date of joining.

Only one named person from each company will be included in the member details list. That person will be responsible for disseminating meeting dates and information to their colleagues.

Members of EWIF will be required to attend at least 2 meetings (regional or national) per annum to maintain membership status. Any person from a company may attend our meetings, not just the person who receives them.

The Application process

EWIF Membership will not be automatically granted to all applicants. Membership applications will be put to a committee and if there are no objections, membership will be approved.

People who wish to become members are invited to attend an initial meeting at no cost. After their attendance, they may be invited to join. Their application must be supported by a current EWIF member.
