Educational Programming

Relevant Workshops & Seminars


Another challenge those in business families face is gaining access to education, information and resources specific to family enterprise. FBAS helps by offering family business education through a variety of programs during the year.


Workshops will vary and depend on what education or information members desire and request. Events where family businesses share their experiences are always interesting and draw a larger audience. We encourage educational events that include member discussions and interaction with the presenters.


Family Business Personal Advisory Circles (PAC’s) Your Own Dedicated “Board of Advisors”

A PAC is a group of 8-12 FBAS members from different non-competing family businesses, and occasionally advisors, who meet monthly to support each other by sharing both personal and business experience in a confidential and supportive environment.
