The idea for FBC came in 2005 as the result of collaboration between local community business leaders who saw a compelling need to provide Family Businesses in California’s North and Central state with consistent and professional resources to meet their unique needs.  As contributors to the economic engine of California, these businesses were committed to forming an organization with a strong volunteer base and that functioned independently to allow for fluid response and service to its dynamic membership.

Officially founded in 2007, the organization now serves approximately 78 Family Owned Businesses in the Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, Yuba and Sutter counties. The organization has expanded its offerings to include family forums, affinity group meetings, social and technical programs (T3Me) and events, and the Generations Conference, which collectively support the growth, prosperity and sustainable success of the area’s Family Businesses.
