2018 Program Theme: Developing the Next Generation

As families change by welcoming new members and new generations, active communication and participation are essential to building family cohesion. An effective family governance process can provide the essential forum for constructive discussion and problem solving that places the culture, values and goals of the family on the same plane as that of the business. Over the course of this program, attendees will gain new insights on developing the next generation, learn from successes and struggles of other families, and integrate their learnings into actionable goals to put into place in the year to come.

Join us for a two-day, interactive experience to support the
growth, development and success of your family’s legacy!
