Family Business Association (FBA)

Family businesses employ 62 percent of the American workforce, and 35 percent of Fortune 500 companies are family controlled. Whether you grew up in an entrepreneurial family or are looking to start a business that includes your nearest and dearest, there’s a lot to talk about. The Family Business Association (FBA) strives to generate meaningful dialogue, creating a framework that will better prepare members for the unique challenges faced in family businesses. We do this through speaker events, case discussions and social events to build networks that last a lifetime.
