For years members have been telling us you're too busy to attend many CAFE events but you want more family business-specific education and knowledge - well, CAFE is listening! We are excited to announce that CAFE has entered into a long term partnership with the Business Families Foundation to provide CAFE members with access to their complete suite of online family business education courses and video case histories covering critical issues such as business family governance, transition planning, communication and conflict management, and next generation development.
May 20-22, 2015 at the landmark downtown Toronto hotel, Westin Harbour Castle Friends and families of CAFE, save the date and plan to join us at our annual conference, the ultimate gathering of family enterprise in Canada! CAFE's 2015 Family Business Symposium will consist of 2 ½ days of keynote presentations and interactive workshops delivered by industry experts.
We invite business families to take 10 minutes to complete a Family Business Survey so we can gain insights on how we might improve our programs and services to meet your needs. Thank you in advance for helping guide the future of CAFE!
The CAFE Governance Committee is seeking two qualified individuals to serve as volunteer Directors on the CAFE national board. One director will serve as a Director at Large, the other as Director, Pacific Region liaising with CAFE chapters in British Columbia (note that this director must be a CAFE Family Member in good standing from a CAFE chapter in BC).
CAFE is embarking on an aggressive new strategic plan focused on expanding our community of business families and delivering more and better events, programs, and services to enhance value for membership.
