Please join as the Pacific Family Business Institute (“PFBI”) releases the results of its 2018 survey of over 80 family businesses in Oregon and Washington. The 2018 Survey gathered data on board structure, processes, and compensation including:

  • Fiduciary board or advisory board?

  • What are other Northwest family’s doing to improve their boards?

  • How much do they pay their directors?

  • Do you pay family directors?

  • Do you have outside directors? What are the benefits of adding “outside” board members to your board?

PFBI will present the survey results and distribute to the attendees a copy of the survey. In addition, we will have an expert panel of family business members who participated in the survey and will share their insights regarding what their respective companies are doing. The panels consist of:

  • Jim Mark, CEO of Melvin Mark Companies

  • Lori Miles-Olund, President of Miles Fiberglass Company

  • Sheryl Southwell, CEO and President of Specialty Polymers

We hope you will be able to participate in this informative and interactive presentation.
