Nurture A Family Business Conductive to Growth

Big image

Family businesses in developed and emerging markets are thriving, and many of them have become market leaders. We can expect to see more family businesses leading the market in the future.

Their high performance is just inevitable, thanks to the positive traits of family businesses: resilient, less likely to layoff, long-term strategic plan, higher profitability in the long run, more engaged in community activities, financially conservative, and purposeful in creating a legacy for future generations.

Business Examiner Story on our Transition to FBAVI

GREATER VICTORIA - Effective immediately, the Canadian Association of Family Enterprise – Vancouver Island Chapter will transition to its new name and branding, Family Business Association – Vancouver Island.

“Over the past fifteen years, we gained a wealth of experience providing services for family businesses in the community," says president Stewart Story. "The Association’s board of directors will continue to respond to our members’ desire for programs that serve the interests of Vancouver Island’s family business community. Our primary goals are to enhance programming for our members and to continue to provide a forum through which our unique community of family business members may connect with one another.”
