Events Calendar - CCFB Networking & Social Events - Networking & Social Events - Conway Center for Family Business


The Conway Center holds several events to facilitate interaction among members and develop deeper relationships among new and prospective members.  A favorite event is the Family Business Tour & Networking Event. The program, hosted by family businesses each year, provides an insider’s perspective into what has made the business successful, how it works, and its plans for the future.

Thank You Anthony-Thomas Candy!

All who attended the Anthony-Thomas Candy Company tour on June 29, 2022 were in for a treat!  Celebrating 70 years and five generations, family members Joe Zanetos, his daughter Candi Trifelos, and Candi's son Nick Trifelos hosted and provide special behind-the-scenes guided tours of their state-of-the-art candy factory.

Food, drinks, and of course lots of delicious Anthony Thomas CHOCOLATE was enjoyed by all!

Thank You 5 Star Staffing!

Summer fun and networking continued as 5 Star Staffing hosted us at their lovely new office in the Short North on August 10, 2022.  5 Star Staffing is a women-owned staffing agency providing quality employees in the hospitality industry for over 30 years.

Family and community business leaders mixed and mingled with retired founder Flo Lang and her two daughters, second generation owners Mimi McCann and Therese McCann.  Great conversation and delicious food and beverages was enjoyed by all who attended.

Exciting plans are underway for our 2023 events showcasing more family businesses!  Details will be posted here when they become available.

Golf Outing

The Conway Center for Family Business started hosting an annual golf outing in 2014 for a fun day of golf and fundraising. Family businesses and Service Providers enjoy a golf scramble, boxed lunch on the course, followed by a casual dinner reception with raffles and prizes.

Thank you to all the players, sponsors and volunteers who participated in our sold-out Golf Outing at The Golf Club at Little Turtle held June 20, 2022 for a great day of play and networking.

We hope to see you next year!  Details for the 2023 Golf Outing will be posted when they become available.
