Dear Members,

We are very proud of our growing membership! Reaching 100 members is a major milestone and great accomplishment, but we are not done yet. Our growth isn’t the only thing that matters, it is much more important that our programming is of the highest caliber and we strive as an organization to meet the needs of our members. And, our membership is incredibly diverse, which makes our membership thrive. Our members enjoy learning from each other just as much as they enjoy learning from experts. It’s the mix between the technical expertise and the real-life experiences where our members leave the table with tangible takeaways that can positively impact their own businesses.

And, this work is done because of passionate volunteers who care deeply about the success and succession of family owned businesses in our region. We have three dynamic committees that are focused on creating and elevating our programs and growing and retaining our membership.

Here is where we need help: We are seeking family members to serve as FBC ambassadors to welcome our new members into the fold and encourage them to attend programs and events. We know members that have experienced the value of the FBC can best help newer members engage in everything we have to offer. If you are interested in joining us as an ambassador, please reach out to me and I’ll get you plugged into the network.
