Welcome to Family Business NextGen 2023 — a place for you to think intentionally about your role in the family business, the family and the outside world. 

In March, we'll be hosting a weekly series of 5 daily one-hour webcasts to address the unique challenges and goals of the next generation of multigenerational family businesses. Each day we'll feature notable NextGen speakers and thought leaders in conversation-style discussions that address key aspects facing NextGens in family business today: governance, building credibility, legacy & impact, support networks and succession. You'll come away with new strategies you can put to use and new peers to add to your network. 

Attending this event will allow you to:

  • Learn from the successes (and missteps!) of other NextGen family business members
  • Offer your own insights and ideas
  • Earn a certificate of completion for use with your family and on your resume
  • Network with other NextGeners
  • Access the NextGen Resources Center with valuable articles and videos

No cost to attend. All that's required is your time.

To earn a Family Business Magazine Certificate of Completion, you must attend all five sessions and answer several polling questions in each session.  Recordings of each session will be available, but viewing these will not create eligibility for a certificate.
