J.D. Byrider franchisees meet three times each year. In addition to an annual convention in November–featuring an update on the state of the company, an opportunity to participate in a variety of instructional seminars, team building, and a chance to network with fellow dealers–franchisees gather in early spring and late summer for a 20-group meeting. The spring and summer 20-group meetings address new information, procedures, and systems provided by Byrider Franchising. They also serve as forums for policy development for the Dealer’s Association, and the sharing of ideas for process improvement and profit maximization.
