Family Business Forums and Technical Program events range from a one hour webinar to half-day events. Whether virtual or in person, FBC programs provide the opportunity to gather and hear from other families about their experiences and best practices in their family business, and challenges they have faced along the way. This also allows for our Technical Advisor members to showcase and share their expertise. It's a great way to get to know other family businesses.
