Connecting families with success to propel business forward.

What a wonderful summer – I can’t remember having had so many beautiful sunny days in a row for a very long time!

Membership renewals, along with new members, are starting to come in and I’d like to extend a huge welcome and thank you for joining us. We’re now heading into another wonderful fall season, one of the most beautiful times of the year in Nova Scotia – if you don’t mind minor hurricanes! We have a great schedule already being rolled out to both entertain and educate and you’re all invited to join.

Everyone was hard at work with FBA all summer, creating arrangements to bring us a full agenda of interesting and educational events beginning on September 18th and continuing throughout the year. In addition to these sessions, please remember that we have a very strong advisor group ready to help you with any issue(s) that may arise. Please check out the website to see this exciting line up of events or advisors:

As of this fall, our new Board will be in place with many returning members being joined by some new faces. The great news is our dedicated board member, Amanée Mousavi of Cresco, will be taking over as President for the next two years. Amanée, I welcome you into this position and know you’ll shine in this role!

Please join us at our Annual General Meeting on October 17, followed by our Family Business Dinner. I look forward to seeing you all at many of our many sessions throughout the year. I really can’t say enough about our hard working and incredible Board, which together with the able assistance and guidance of Michelle and Sarah, make our organization ever so wonderful. Thank You!

Happy fall,

John Abbass
