Extended Programs

Through the extended programs featuring nationally recognized authorities, participants explore solutions to the varied and challenging issues facing family businesses. These programs not only offer insight and counsel of well qualified featured speakers, but also provide opportunities for participants to have direct and personal access to the speakers. In addition, the programs provide an opportunity for the exchange of ideas and experiences with members of other family businesses.


The bimonthly lunch meetings provide members the opportunity to interact with each other and exchange information, ideas, and experiences. Each meeting features an educational presentation on practical and relevant information that can be applied to a family enterprise, or an inspiring personal family business story that gives encouragement and insight.
