Stories from 2020 Conference


The annual conference helped us understand the family dynamic and the many facets of it. It was high powered and first class in all ways.

Jim S., 1st Generation

Rapid City, SD - Construction Industry

We learned how to turn our business from a single person calling the shots to a management team, ownership group, and board of directors.

Rachel N., 2nd Generation

Real Estate Industry

It is likely that our family business would not have successfully transitioned to the second generation without our years of involvement and commitment to the Family Business Conference.

Robert T., 2nd Generation
