Family Businesses are critical to the success of our country’s economy. They employ 80% of the U.S. workforce and create about 85% of all new jobs in the country. Much more than just small, local shops and farms, over one-third of the companies in the Fortune 500 are family controlled and are among some of the largest companies in our country. As a committed leader in this path, the FBC offers its members a variety of programs, events, and groups to assist our region in growing and perpetuating its Family Businesses.
In addition to our Members Only Affinity Groups and Family Business Leadership Series, our programs include:
Often panel discussions, these are held quarterly and include time for networking, learning, and the occasional happy hour.
T3Me- Talk Technical to Me
These programs are meant to inform and educate members in technical areas and are provided by FBC sponsors. Topics may include succession planning, acquisition, effective organizational structures and social media strategies.
