IU East School of Business and Economics offers Family Business Symposium

April 24th, 2012

The Indiana University East School of Business and Economics through its Center for Leadership Development is hosting a Family Business Symposium from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 1, in the Whitewater Hall Community Room. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Creating a family business that survives and thrives over several generations is a challenging task. This symposium will focus on issues, challenges, and possibilities related to running a family business. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss some of the research related to family businesses, participate in workshop sessions, and network with other family businesses. Attending with multiple family members and generations is encouraged.

Dean of the IU East School of Business and Economics David Frantz is the symposium chair. In addition to his role as dean and associate professor of management, Frantz has consulted with family-owned companies for the past 20 years.

“Our area has a rich history of second, third and even fourth generation businesses. I am looking forward to bringing a number of folks together to review and share their perspectives on some of the success and challenging factors for family-owned firms. I see this as the first of other events to come and we are grateful to be a part of this at IU East,” Frantz said.

There is no charge for this session; it is being underwritten by the IU East School of Business and Economics.

Please confirm your attendance by registering online at iue.edu/leadership. For more information, call 765-973-8366.

The symposium is supported by a grant from the IU Council for Regional Economic Engagement and Development (CREED).
