Like a well-functioning family business, the UNI Family Business Center relies on support of our advisory board. The following individuals have contributed their time and talents to help the FBC succeed.

“We thank all of our members and family business leaders across the nation for the extraordinary ways you lead. We also want to acknowledge and thank our Advisory Board members and sponsors, whose insights and contributions make it possible to do what we do every day.”
