November Family Business Dinner and 20 Year Celebration Highlights 


Over 120 family business members and guests gathered on November 14 to learn best practices  from legacy family leaders and to enjoy an evening of fun photos, great music and community with other business families.

Feedback from members:

(A take-away for me was) the reinforcement that no matter what your size organization, velocity is a function of having the right people with you for the ride. Kevin Connor, Modern SBC

Vision Casting, Naval Observing and Naval Destroying are great subjects for private reflection as well as personal and professional growth. Dan Kendra, Precision Solutions


The presenters were excellent, in particular those from the 3 family businesses (Clemens Food Group, CH Briggs, Vertex). It was engaging to hear Scott Hackman speak and provide such a new twist on learning with social media (Twitter). Chris Thompson, Vertex, Inc.

What is a Legacy Family? 

Legacy families have an uncommon commitment to:

  • Nurturing great families 
  • Cultivating an entrepreneurial spirit
  • Creating a sense of peace (shalom) in the surrounding community and the world
Legacy families are the fiber of abundant communities!
