Family Business Center at UW-Madison's Program Schedule

Center for Family Business atMarquette's Program Schedule

The Forum's membership committee composed of family business owners and sponsors establishes the programs after assessing member interests and needs.  Programs are designed to provide insight into management strategies, tools, and techniques that have proven successful for family businesses.  Although each business is unique due to its blend of business and family characteristics, members identify common themes and issues through the presentations and through talking with one another in peer and small group discussions during each program.

Programs are presented by family business owners, non-family managers, sponsors and nationally/internationally recognized experts.  The intent is to make the theory and case study applicable to specific family business needs while providing adequate time to talk with peers about specific issues and experiences.

The Forum welcomes family business owners who are interested in membership to attend one short program as our guest.  Participating in a program and interacting with the members and sponsors is an excellent way to assess the value of the Forum for your family and business.  If you are interested in becoming a member of the Forum and would like to attend a program as our guest, please contact our director, Sue Schierstedt. Guests pay a minimal fee that is applicable to membership within 60 days of the program.
