13th Annual Symposium

Friday November 2, 2018 at Hotel Andaluz from 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM

Join us for our 13th Annual Symposium hosted at Hotel Andaluz. We are excited to welcome Andrew Keyt as our Keynote Speaker for this year's Symposium.

After a family enterprise is successful, the challenge for the founders, and members of the next generation, is to prepare and create a team of family members who are ready, willing and able to continue the business.

This workshop, following the introductory presentation, will ask members of the older and younger generations to look at what they can do to create this working partnership. Each generation must renew its commitment to the family enterprise, and learn appropriate roles as business or family leaders. As owners, they must work together -- even though they may not have day-to-day management roles working for the business.

We hope you can join us for a fantastic day filled with a luncheon presentation, afternoon workshops, and breakout sessions. If you have any questions please contact Robin Dozier Otten at or (505) 730-2141.
