The Next Generation Peer Group is a pilot program that was developed to help next gen-ers transition into leadership roles within their family businesses by exposing them to various issues that may arise and providing a safe environment for in-depth discussion of business and personal matters. To help subsidize the cost of these meetings, participants are asked to pay an annual fee (July 1 to June 30) of $100 for the 1st person and $50 for each subsequent person from an FBCH member company. The fee is prorated to $50 for the first person and $25 for each additional family member for those who want to participate in the February and April 2015 meetings.
