Greetings Fellow FBC Members,

The Family Business Center thrives on the energy of our members and, in every sense of the phrase, the more the merrier.  More members increase our collective knowledge via sharing of experiences and help to create a dynamic group of industry leaders. With that in mind, we are proud that we have enjoyed tremendous growth over the past year, surpassing our membership target and nearly reaching 100 total members! Please help us reach that impressive milestone by inviting a fellow family business (say, a client, vendor or friend) to an upcoming FBC program.

Speaking of membership, our 3rd Annual Membership Thank You Blitz is currently underway. Our membership committee members, led by Kevin Fat (Fat Family Restaurant Group) and Dave Boyce (BFBA), are scheduling quick visits with each of our members to deliver gift baskets filled with items provided by FBC members. These member visits give us an opportunity to learn more about our members’ needs and, thus, guide programming in 2019. We want to make sure we are providing valuable programming to help your family business grow and prosper.

Finally, I want to let you know that the February 2019 edition of our largest and most comprehensive event – the Generations Family Business Conference – is now open for early registration. Through October 15, our members can enjoy discounted pricing on individual and family package tickets.  This conference will again bring a roster of highly respected keynote and breakout speakers to tackle topics most relevant to our members.
