Experience Powerful and Trusted Peer Group Learning

We offer an innovative approach that gives you networking and learning opportunities tailored to your individual interests and concerns.

The benefits of joining a peer group include:

In-depth Discussions
of Critical Issues



A Confidential Forum
for Delicate Issues

The cost to join a peer group is $1,500 per person for current FBC members and $2,500 per person for non-FBC members. To register for a peer group, contact FBC Director Sherry Herwig at sherry.herwig@uwcped.org or 608-441-7347.

Current Peer Groups


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

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 is for you.

Key Non-Family Leaders

If you hold a top management position (CEO, CFO, COO, HR Manager, Line Manger, 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 in this peer group.

“The other members provide a great sounding board for working through issues large and small and perspective about the challenges and joys that all family businesses face.”
