Signs Now, a division of Allegra Network LLC, recently held elections for the company's Franchisee Advisory Board (FAB), and has named Signs Now Rochester Co-Owner Jackie Ciresi as its newest at-large member. She will serve on the board until 2014. The FAB is comprised of seven elected franchisee representatives and three appointed representatives from Signs Now headquarters.

The objectives of the FAB include the participation in development of programs; provide feedback on purpose, goals and direction of programs; to help ensure accountability and to increase participation of all franchise owners in company programs; and to improve feedback on the effectiveness of company programs.
