The PFBA is the leading independent, non-profit organization serving family businesses and their advisors in the Midwest. Educational programs including webinars, conferences, peer groups, retreats, tours and award recognition are provided to support recognition and best business practices for family businesses. Members enjoy the unique comradery of peers which allows them to collaboratively exchange knowledge and experience.
It takes hard work, persistence, and determination for a family business to succeed. Families need to be innovative and face challenges that stem from both personal and professional challenges created with the overlapping of the family system and the business system.
Despite these obstacles, family business are the backbone of our Midwestern economic engine. They provide the majority of employment opportunities, revenue generation, economic growth and are the most active philanthropically in their local communities.
