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. There is an additional annual fee to participate in this pilot program. The fee is $100 for the first person and $50 for each subsequent person from an FBCH member company. The annual fee covers quarterly Next Generation Peer Group meetings from July 1 to June 30.
