Connecting families with success to propel business forward.

Summer is here!

The association had a great start to spring with an exceptional Peter Wilson Dinner featuring Tim Moore, chaired by Margie Humphrey’s with the able assistance of many exceptional volunteers.

Our most recent breakfast & lunch sessions were a hit, ending the spring and starting the summer with a joint venture with BDC called the Legacy Series, spearheaded by our advisor chair, André Boudreau and Greg Dickie of BDC.

This inspirational session featured a moderated discussion panel with Emily Tregunno, Halifax Seed and Kim Conrad, Conrad Brothers followed by a round table case-study where attendees had to manage decision making within a real-life family business succession scenario. This was the first of five planned sessions throughout Nova Scotia and the experience was paramount to those in attendance.

The association takes a break from events for the summer, but on the exciting news front, we’ll be rolling out our new logo design, created by our very own Executive Director’s daughter Taylor Conrad (thank you, Taylor), as summer goes on so watch for it.

I’d like to thank André Boudreau and the rest of our dedicated advisors, Michelle LaVigne, our Executive Director, along with the assistance of Sarah Wilson, for all the things they do to make this association valuable to our members. Our Board has been volunteering all year and have been an exceptional help to the association – you each deserve a big shout out for your hard work!

I hope you all have a wonderful summer and please watch for details on our fun day of golf coming this September.

Thank you and regards,

John Abbass
