Family Business Member Testimonials

We find the most value in the Affinity Peer Groups and the Annual Conference. The diversity of the companies involved adds so much value to a member. It’s hard to quantify the value of the PFBA; I can tell you that after four years of being in it I find myself asking how I could live without it.

Tiffany Anderson

A-Ox Welding Supply

It was good for us to review the history of our business together and put in writing what exactly had allowed us to be successful. It was a helpful exercise to specify our business’s goals and values.

The NextGen program could not have come at a better time. I took away invaluable information and real-life situations that I brought to my family and management team to prepare for our future

Erica Limoges

Limoges Construction - Sioux Falls, SD

PFBA has allowed our company to work through the tough topics in family business and has provided opportunities to network with others who are in the same situations. The PFBA is invaluable to a small family business.
