Experience Powerful and Trusted Peer Group Learning

The Wisconsin Family Business Center offers an innovative approach that gives you even more networking and learning opportunities tailored to your particular interests and concerns. You are provided with:

  • Peer Support
  • A confidential forum for delicate issues
  • Relationship building
  • In-depth discussions of critical issues

Groups of 8 to 12 members meet once a month for three hours for a facilitated discussion led by local family business experts.


This peer group is for people who are running a family-owned business. While the title of the individual is not important, he/she must be clearly in charge of company operations.

Future Leaders Peer Group

If your parent or parents are still considered the company head, but you are in a position of (future) leadership within the family-owned business, this peer group will be of particular interest.

Key Non-Family Leaders

If you hold a top management position (CEO, CFO, COO, HR Manager, Line Manager, General Manager, etc.) within a family-owned company but are not a family member, you encounter unique dynamics. Learn from others who share that role.

The cost is $1,500 per person for current FBC members and $2,500 per person for non members. To register for a Peer Group, contact FBC Director Sherry Herwig at [email protected] or (608) 441-7347.
