Welcome to the UNC Asheville Family Business Forum

Family owned businesses face unique issues. The mission of the UNC Asheville Family Business Forum (FBF) is to provide professional learning opportunities to help family-owned businesses maximize the overall well-being of their company and to assist with transition planning for the next generation of family ownership.

The FBF is the only ongoing professional development program specifically designed for family businesses in Western North Carolina. It is a member-driven organization; all of the programming and events are based on feedback from businesses telling us what they want to learn more about. Membership in the Forum is open to family and privately-held businesses.
