2019 Program Theme | Accelerate: Building Momentum in Family Governance

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 and foundation 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 their family governance system, learn from successes and struggles of other families, and integrate their learnings into a work plan based on their individual goals for governance with action steps to put into place in the year to come.
