"I attend a fair amount of networking events.  This Women in Family Business was one of the best I've ever been to! I'm a big fan of the speaker, Susan Dench anyway, but wanted you to know I loved the energy and what we learned!"
- Kimberley C. Kalicky, Assistant Vice President - Operations, R.M. Davis, Inc.

We have over 40 programs scheduled for 2017!  Our programming theme is "Growing and Protecting your Family Business".  With this in mind, we've developed a number of educational programs including two 3-part series called the "ART of Family Business" and "HR for the Family Business".  We will also have our Affinity Groups, Family Business Spotlights, Socials and more!  New for 2017, we're inviting the men to two of our "Women in Family Business" programs that are open to all.  The ones in "pink" below are still reserved for the women.  Our Maine Family Business Awards was on Wednesday, May 17th and we had over 350 in attendance!


Below is a diagram that spells out all our programs for 2017. Please Note:  Open programs include all family business members, associate partner members and “future” members (i.e. non-members).  At the Associate Partner level of membership, certain programs may be unavailable and open only to family business members (Examples: CEO Central, Women’s Leadership Forum, and Next Generation discussions.)  These programs are by reservation only with Catherine Wygant Fossett, the executive director. 

Below is a flip book calender from July - December, 2017 with all our programs.  We will update the online calendar as we progress throughout the year. Come join us!

A-R-T of Family Business - Part 3 of 3
