Board Members

These individuals represent family businesses and/or our service providers to family businesses. Each member has elected to participate as a board member, and to make themselves available to the general membership at our seminars and sometimes on a one-on-one basis for your family business concerns. Also, they assist in governing the IFB and work in committees on specific projects. The Advisory Board meets regularly, in addition to the normal sessions.

Their purpose is to provide community service for the family and privately-owned-and-run businesses in a non-commercial environment. Many of these individuals also run their own organizations and provide experience to the general membership.
