The CBS Family Enterprise Alumni Circle is a dedicated networking and learning group for CBS alumni who own, manage and/or advise family firms. We host events throughout the year with special access to global scholars, international leaders and our highly engaged Advisory Board of notable principals and executives in family enterprise and wealth management. Membership is complimentary. Some events are fee-based. Members are required to sign our pledge.
*Membership is open to all CBS and Family Business Program alumni*
Further your Knowledge
Circle members have access to global scholars and practitioners through our quarterly “Family Enterprise Insights” Series on relevant topics including estate planning, ethics in family business, running a family meeting, governance and more. Throughout the year, members receive compelling articles, podcast recommendations, and exclusive invites to join in-person and online webinars with Q & A access to professors and professionals. Alumni Circle members can audit Family Business Program courses year round. Members are encouraged to suggest topics and contribute to programming.
Expand your Network
At our annual reception, Circle members have a unique opportunity to get to know each other and the global family enterprise leaders on the Family Business Program’s Advisory Board. In addition, Circle members are invited to our Pre-Conference Dinner, where they enjoy conversation with conference keynotes and panelists. These intimate settings provide a chance to expand your professional network.
Make Meaningful Connections
Members are also invited "Family Enterprise Connects," confidential bi-weekly calls on relevant topics for business owners and managers. Members are encouraged to plan local meet-ups, dinners, and coffee dates to exchange ideas and make new connections. Circle members host events in their region to connect with CBS family business alumni network, including the Advisory Board and local leaders, and beyond. Members engage in discussions on topics of common interest.
