Family Director Essentials Program

Overview

This highly interactive experience is designed to help develop participants through engaging content, peer discussions and real-world case studies. Attendees will also connect and learn from the successes and challenges of other families in an open, confidential environment — fully supported throughout the program by expert facilitators.

Over the course of the program, participants will focus on:

  • The role of the board (advisory or fiduciary) in a family business
  • Effective board function, including the board’s relationship with the family and management
  • The specific value of family directors, independents, the chair, and committees and how to leverage those strengths
  • The behaviors that make a family director effective in the boardroom
  • Key skills and knowledge that family directors should have and/or develop
  • Navigating the unique tensions that family directors experience

Participants will also receive materials that support their learning and can be used as resources for their boards. There will be ample opportunities for networking and socializing.

Event Times

Thursday, April 30: Day one of the program will open with attendee check-in, networking and breakfast taking place between 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM. The program will begin at 8:30 AM and wrap up with a reception and dinner at starting at 6:30 PM.

Friday, May 1: On day two, a private breakfast buffet will be available from 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM. The program will begin at 8:30 AM and conclude at 12:00 PM with lunch. You will receive a detailed agenda in advance of the program.

Who Should Attend

This program is designed for family members in a multi-generational family business who are current or potential future board directors for their family enterprise. This program may be especially valuable for:

  • Family directors who are either new to their role or looking for fresh ideas to further their development
  • Family members considering joining the board of directors
  • Board leaders (especially chairs, vice chairs, governance committee members) seeking to build board effectiveness
  • Family owners in the beginning phase of establishing a functioning board, growing or changing the board structure, or adding independent directors to their board

The program would be a good option for families who want to efficiently share common governance approaches with a group of family members/directors. We welcome groups of up to six attendees per family.

To ensure all attendees derive optimum value from the program, attendance is restricted to 75 attendees and is subject to approval by conference organizers.

If you would like to discuss the program and whether it is a good fit for you, please contact Kristi Daeda at (773) 784-5008 or daeda@thefbcg.com.

Join us for a two-day, training experience to support your
growth, development and success as a family director!
