Make the most of membership

When you join Family Business Network, you find insight and inspiration from your peers in other complex family businesses. You find your place within your family enterprise and find unity with other family members. And together, you find the right way forward.

FBN-USA membership offers meaningful learning opportunities for every member of your family, no matter what their age or level of involvement with the family business. The membership offers opportunities for your executives and board members to learn alongside you and other families as well.  We believe it’s important for your key executives to learn about the “family side” of a family business.
