2005 Distinguished Service Awardees named.

One of the highlights of the International Franchise Association's recent Franchise Appreciation Day celebration was the presentation of the 2005 Distinguished Service Awards. The awards were established to recognize individuals who have devoted many years to promoting franchising through helping the association fulfill its mission by active participation on committees, task forces and the board of directors.

MotoPhoto franchisee Haunani Kekuna was named the Franchisee Forum's recipient. She was a founding member of the Coffee Beanery's Franchisee Advisory Council, on which she served until joining the MotoPhoto Franchise system a decade later. As a Coffee Beanery franchisee, she was a founding member of IFA's Franchisee Advisory Council, later to become the Franchisee Forum, and served as its second chairperson in 1995, the year the association's bylaws were changed to include the council's chairperson on the IFA's Executive Committee.

Carl Zwisler, a member of the Haynes and Boone law firm's Franchise and Distribution Law Practice Group, was honored as recipient of the IFA's 2005 Supplier Forum Distinguished Service Award. Zwisler has been active in franchising for 30 years. He began his franchising career as a member of the IFA staff as staff counsel in 1975. After serving more than eight years at IFA, he went into private practice, but remained active with the association, serving on a wide variety of committees.

William Kimball, former chairman and CEO of Des Moines, Iowa-based Medicap Pharmacies Inc., was honored with the Franchisor Forum Distinguished Service Award for his leadership as chairman of the Iowa Coalition for Responsible Franchising in fighting anti-franchising legislation in that state. Kimball currently serves on the boards of directors of the Iowa Association of Business and Industry, Principal Mutual Funds and of the University of Northern Iowa's College of Business Administration.
