NWFBA Professional Development Series:

The Pacific Family Business Institute in conjunction with our partnering sponsors, is 
pleased to present the results of the recently published Northwest Family Business Survey. 
Their ongoing research offers valuable insights to family businesses and their advisors into the challenges, issues, and opportunities facing family businesses in the Pacific Northwest.

We hope you will join us as we discuss their findings relative to business growth, succession planning, family business structure and ownership, governance and more.  
Through a brief presentation and moderated panel of questions posed to Cascadia, DWT, and Moss Adams, participating sponsors and participants in the research, we will all search for new ways to help regional family businesses thrive.
 Program Deliverables
  • Explore key survey findings from 200 family businesses in Oregon and Washington
  • Learn how you can assist family business clients in comparing themselves to industry benchmark 
  • Discuss practical ways to share this data and engage family business clients with business growth opportunities, succession and leadership planning, and family business governance.
