Membership Benefits

Given the fact that the average succession plan takes between 5 and 15 years, it is clear that family business continuity requires dedicated, long-term commitment on your part of valuable time, energy, and resources.  We encourage you to make that commitment today by becoming a member of the Family Business Center.  It is an investment in your family, your business, and your legacy.

As a member of the Family Business Center, you are entitled to:

  2. A five hour block of free consulting time ($1000 value) to create a plan of action based on the “Family Business Snapshot.” Follow up services beyond the five hours may include additional fee-based consulting and coaching services from the FBC, or strategic referrals to the top family business experts in the region.

  3. Discounted admission to educational forums and annual events, discounted yearly subscription rate for Family Business Magazine, and 50% off of UofL Professional Development seminars and certificate programs.

  4. Free "Family Business Assessment" to gauge the health of your family business relative to known best practices.

“What every family business should ask themselves is: ‘What type of energy, time, and financial resources would l put towards something that would ensure that we are still a successful family business twenty years from now? And how important is it that all family owners are still talking to each other, and still have good loving and caring relationships with one another?’”
