Family Business Advisory Teams (FBA Teams)
Your Own Dedicated “Board of Advisors”
An FBA Team is a group of 8-12 FBA VI members from different non-competing family businesses and advisors who meet monthly to support each other by sharing both personal and business experiences in a confidential and supportive environment. FBA VI provides excellent resource materials and moderator training, along with $500 annually to help cover the costs of an FBA Team retreat.
FBA Team discussions focus on areas unique to family business, including:
- Developing a continuity plan consistent with family values and traditions.
- Family governance including managing family conflict, rivalry and communications.
- Successfully bringing family members into the business.
- Growing the business while maintaining family harmony.
