Membership Benefits

• Annual Scholarship Program – each year, FRANE awards thousands of dollars in college scholarships to employees or immediate family members of our member companies entering college or enrolled in an accredited undergraduate program. To date, we have awarded close to $700,000 in scholarships to deserving students throughout the Northeast. Again, this past year, we awarded over 25 scholarships!

• Annual Events That Add Business Value – FRANE Feeds the Hungry Volunteer Day at Local Food Banks, FRANE / Ryan Marrocco Memorial Golf Tournament to support the scholarship program, Annual Convention and Business Conference. Each event provides the opportunity to bring together decision makers from our member companies allowing business discussion and networking in a casual and comfortable setting. Each event supports our initiatives in both the educational and charitable giving areas.

• Sponsorship and Marketing Opportunities – each event we hold provides unique sponsorship opportunities for our member companies. With exposure across our membership and throughout the trade, this is a great way to increase visibility and recognition of your organization, products and/or services. In addition, with our membership in the National Frozen & Refrigerated Association, our members enjoy the opportunity to participate in marketing programs, information and ideas that support the initiatives that drive sales in these critical categories.

• Educational Opportunities – programs include both professional and personal enrichment seminars and/or forums that focus on current, cutting-edge topics for our members as well as our newly launched youth educational series. The latter is a partnership between FRANE and its members to provide educational opportunities for schools and organizations throughout our trading area, all focused on healthy eating alternatives as well as food safety.
