Family Members & Advisor Members

Family Members

A family business can range from a small partnership to a larger well established business that has passed to multiple generations.  The scale of a family business may vary, but the issues and challenges are often the same. If you think you are a family business – large or small – FBA can provide you with the support you need to prosper.


Advisor Members provide a broad range of professional services to family businesses. They understand the unique issues family businesses face and help bring knowledge and understanding to a complex array of family & business issues.  Advisors do not actively solicit business from family members and comprise no more that 1/3 of our membership.

We Understand...

Succession Planning

Succession planning is one of the biggest challenges facing family business. Many businesses fail in the second generation and issues of competence, perceived nepotism and communication present unique challenges to family business owners.


Compensation for family in family firms can be complex. Confusion among roles in the business' management, ownership and family can cause tension among family and non-family employees.

Work/Life Balance

The line between work and life is blurry in the workforce in general these days- this goes double for family businesses who work with their family.

Strategic Planning

Family businesses have a better chance of succeeding in the next generation when they have a plan in place that outlines responsibility and authority.

FBA - We Are Family

Family Business Atlantic is a not for profit organization that helps family businesses grow and prosper through membership connections and through the support of our trusted advisors.

We encourage all family members to join a peer group – forums of 8-10 non-competing family members who meet regularly to share their knowledge and learnings in a confidential environment. This is a unique FBA offering and is our Association’s secret sauce!

In addition to networking opportunities, we focus on providing timely educational events that keep our members current on issues that are unique to family enterprises.

Our signature events bring us together to celebrate our successes and create opportunities for us to relax and enjoy the camaraderie of other like minded entrepreneurs.

One of the many advantages of membership in FBA is the opportunity to meet and share ideas with other like minded people.  All members are encouraged to source vendors and advisors from our membership list and we do so freely without solicitation.

All companies who work alongside family members –  large and small – can benefit from FBA.
