The Family Business Center: Your Family. Our Community.

The FBC is a community where business-owning families can exchange strategies and experiences, safely explore challenging issues, and learn from leading experts in areas that are unique to family businesses. From understanding interpersonal dynamics in a professional setting to sustaining a legacy culture, FBC seeks to ensure family harmony while building a successful company.


Members of the FBC are entitled to:

  • Unlimited seats to our FBC Roundtables — regularly-scheduled groups where members can share insights and practical advice in a comfortable, confidential,  facilitator-lead environment
  • Discounted admission to educational forums
  • Free admission to member-only events
  • FBC-member exclusive networking opportunities — solicitation-free events with nationally recognized family business experts
  • Family business assessments — a diagnostic survey of your company’s procedures and protocols
  • Primary access to faculty/graduate sustenance from the UofL College of Business MBA program

“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?”
