Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2017 Family Business Conference. It was the most successful gathering of the association to date, and it was an honor to have a diversity of industry leaders convene to offer advice, aspect and anecdotes to attendees. Many thanks to those who shared their expertise, as well as to those engaged listeners who sparked such lively discussion during the panels. It was a similar distinction to acknowledge and welcome new members at this year’s awards ceremony; they are all a testament to the strength of family businesses in our commonwealth, and all across New England.
