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:
Family Business Forums
These are half-day events held twice per year (spring and fall) and include time for networking and learning. We will gather to hear from other families about best practices in their family business and challenges they have faced along the way. Our sponsor members have an opportunity to share their technical expertise in breakout sessions as appropriate. This is a great way to get to know other family businesses. If you are a family business and would like to attend as a guest, please contact Stella Premo, Executive Director at 916.771.3220.
