Family Business Forum

Helping the family business thrive.

The UNC Asheville Family Business Forum is a resource to help family-held businesses maximize their well-being and transition successfully to the next generation.

Guided by its members and supported by key strategic partners, the Family Business Forum presents programs that are of strategic advantage to its member companies. Topics originate from member feedback or timely business issues from the world at large. Members benefit from relationships with other family businesses that engender the exchange of new ideas and best practices.

The Family Business Forum is the only ongoing professional development and awareness-raising environment specifically designed for family businesses in Asheville. It is a privilege for UNC Asheville to partner with our community to provide this important resource.
