The Institute for Family Business is a unique cooperative between a great group of concerned community members, the Craig School of Business , and support from the Greater Area Chamber of Commerce. We focus our membership on family businesses but also recommend involvement from organizations that support family businesses, as they need to understand the unique issues families face in business.
- Education through guest speakers, industry professionals and the family members themselves at seminars, affinity meetings (select family members), our library and other resources to which we provide access.
- Inspiration and networking with family business members that have dealt with the same issues that other family businesses do.
- Opportunities to give back to the community both through financial support and networking with the other members. Member’s advice and suggestion of where to obtain assistance is extremely valuable. This contribution may not be quantifiable, yet it can be invaluable in helping family businesses avoid and/or properly manage more effectively in times of crisis..
"Our goal is to see family businesses succeed and remain successful for many years to come."
