Good governance in family business is essential. Through a series of well-communicated procedures and guidelines, family, management and shareholders can fulfill both desired and necessary corporate objectives in the most responsible way. This process results in successful companies, as well as healthy family relationships.

Join FEX and the Alberta Business Family Institute at our Effective Governance and the Family Enterprise workshop. The Alberta Business Family Institute has an integral focus on family business in Alberta with unique educational and outreach programs that are tailored to supporting leaders in family business and those advisors who are in place to help facilitate their success.

The Effective Governance and the Family Enterprise workshop will incorporate a combination of lecture, discussion, and case analysis. Participants will integrate current theory and practice relevant to effective governance of family enterprises, be introduced to concepts and schema helpful in understanding the dynamics of family firms and recipes for good governance as firms evolve, and enhance leadership and governance rubrics useful for working in, and advising, family enterprises.
