"Anyone involved with a family-owned business would benefit by being a member of the IFOB.  You will meet other family business owners who have had many of the same challenges.  And you will find the right expertise to successfully guide you and the development of your company."
- Adam Lee, Chairman, Lee Auto Malls

Memberships at the Institute for Family-Owned Business (IFOB) are for one year starting on January 1st.  Members who join the IFOB later in the year will have a pro-rated rate.  Benefits include:

  • All Employees: When a family business or associate partner signs up as a member the membership covers EVERYONE in the company. So all employees can come to our events at the member rate (often free) and enjoy member benefits!
  • 2 Listings On IFOB Website: All our members are listed in our family business or associate partner directory and our services directory. Let us know, if you want us to add anyone else from your company to our list so they can be seen here too, along with your company description!
  • Social Media Network: New hire, special recognition, expansion... do you have news you want us to share? Send it over to us and we will share your news to our Facebook page that has over 1,700 likes! Connect with us on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube to stay current with the IFOB network!
  • Over 50 Programs: A full calendar of events tailored to you! With our affinity groups, women's programs, educational series, and networking events there is something for everyone! AT IFOB events you don't have to explain that you are a family business or work with one. You're not in this alone, you're a part of the IFOB family too!
  • Advertise for free: Do you have an educational program that you want us to share with our network? We are happy to include member programs that meet our educational criteria. Pass along the flyers, email, etc. and we will let other members know about your program. 
Programs and events are designed to allow ample opportunities for prime networking, developing new relationships, strengthening existing relationships, and education with like individuals facing the myriad of challenges and opportunities that family-owned businesses share.  

Please note:  At the Members/Associate Partner level of membership, certain programs may be unavailable and open only to family business members (Examples: CEO Central, Women’s Leadership Forum, Leaders in Transition, and Next Generation discussions.)

Members and future members have the opportunity to support the work of the Institute at an enhanced level through sponsorship.  To learn more about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Catherine Wygant Fossett at 207-798-2667 or catherine@fambusiness.org.
