Events Calendar - CCFB Peer Group - Peer Group Programs - Conway Center for Family Business

If you are considering participating in a peer group, would like to observe one, or have any questions, visit the Peer Group FAQs or contact Amy Dotts, COO, at ADotts@FamilyBusinessCenter.com.

Peer groups are one of the most powerful and best learning forums offered by the Conway Center for Family Business.

Peer groups provide a confidential environment for idea exchange, family business education, and personal growth. They present an opportunity to learn by seeking advice from peers and professionals who have "been there, done that" and who are willing to share their experiences and knowledge. Each peer group has a shared purpose and agreed upon expectations. In addition, participants commit to respecting the confidentiality of group members.

Below are descriptions of the Peer Groups that we offer. At the end of this listing is a calendar of all upcoming Peer Groups with links to register.
