We are really pleased to let you know that CIBC will be a corporate sponsor this year and will be the presenting sponsor for our Mental Health event in the spring of 2023. Thank you Kurtis Dukelow, CIBC Wood Gundy, who is on our board, for taking the lead in making this happen. We really appreciate everything you do for us!

We need your Help and Support!

To continue growing our Association, we ask that all members reach out into your network and invite another family-owned business to attend one of our events. Tickets are $40 for non-members so we ask that you sponsor your guest as a gift to the association. You can do this by registering them as a guest as part of your registration. See all events here>>

2. NEW LOCATION: What the Next Generation Wants You to Know.” Tuesday, January 10th 8-930am. Coast Victoria Hotel and Marina, 146 Kingston Street, Victoria BC

Too often the first generation of owners do not really understand what is on the minds and in the hearts of their children, those who work for the business and those who choose not to.

This will be a panel of our members including second, third and fourth generations providing insights, wisdom and advice on what they think and feel you need to know. If you’re just beginning transition or even if you have completed the transition, this session will provide lasting insights that you can put into practice. Free for Members. Non-Members $40. See panel and register here>>
