Each year the Pacific Family Business Institute (PFBI) surveys family businesses to better understand the benefits and liabilities of owning and operating a family-owned business in the Pacific Northwest. Join us at our upcoming event where PFBI co-directors Ron Dohr, Mark Green, and Rich Simmonds will share:
- Key insights derived from their survey findings
- Challenges keeping family business leaders up at night
- Future trends

The survey, which began in 2012, involves speaking with nearly 200 family business leaders in more than ten industry sectors in Oregon and Washington. PFBI asks leaders about government policy, economic conditions, and management structure.  The survey questions cover an array of topics, such as: business history, future management and governance structures, and the influence of multiple generations on the family-owned businesses. The resulting report is the 2015 Northwest Family Business Survey, and its information is used to support family businesses as they navigate the challenges of balancing business needs with those of the family.

We hope you'll join us for this compelling discussion for anyone involved in supporting family-owned businesses. Space is limited, so please register soon.
