Connecting families with success to propel business forward.

Happy New Year to you and yours.

Our programming is coming together nicely for the upcoming year, so please take a look at our Calendar of Events on our website, as we kick off our training classes in late January with a Human Resource and E-Commerce course.  These courses are rich in content and offer great value – and the Province subsidizes them for our members. They are open to anyone in the business, for both family and advisor members.

The first of our breakfast/lunch sessions will be held on January 30 and will deal with Leveraging Provincial and Federal funding programs.

And of course, our Peter Wilson Dinner will be here before we know it and we are looking forward to welcoming the impressive Tim Moore as our guest speaker. Margie Humphreys will be chairing the event with the help of an incredible team.

One resource that has been underutilized is our professional group of trusted Advisors. I’m not sure if members realize they can contact any one of these people and set up a meeting to discuss any issues. There is no charge, unless you engage them, and you are under no obligation to do so if the fit does not work. Our peer groups are also encouraged to reach out to our advisors – many have come into a group meeting or at a retreat to address relevant topics that business owners face. Contact our office any time if you are not sure which Advisor would be the best to approach and they’ll provide you with assistance.

We have a mandate to help family business and we plan to do that by offering a great line up of programs throughout 2019. Please have your family members review our schedule of events and take advantage of as many of these opportunities and resources as possible. I hope to see you at our many functions!

Keep well and regards,
