Family Business Tours & NETWORKING
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 two 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 to Oakland Nursery for hosting our networking event in May. We look forward to touring another family business in late summer. Stay tuned for details!

The Conway Center for Family Business started hosting an annual golf outing in 2014. It’s a fun day of golf and fundraising for the Center. Participants enjoy a golf scramble, boxed lunch on the course, followed by a casual dinner reception with raffles and prizes.
Our Golf Outing this year was at The Golf Club at Little Turtle on Monday, June 21, 2021. THANK YOU to all the players, sponsors, supporters, and volunteers. We had a fantastic day with nearly 80 family business and service provider members playing together to raise funds for the Center!
