Every year each Subway market elects an board of franchisees in the market who will decide how to spend the advertising contributions in the market. Our election for the Taiwan board was in September and I ran for a seat (last year I didn’t qualify as I hadn’t been open long enough). Unfortunately I did not earn a seat in the election and was tied as second runner up. Today I found out that one of the board members resigned. The first runner up passed on the seat and the person I was tied with deferred to me, so I’m now on the Subway Taiwan ad board.
