Affinity Groups

Affinity groups are made up of 6-8 Institute for Family Business members and meet on a monthly basis to discuss issues that are most critical to them. The location, time, and topics are decided by the group. Affinity groups are facilitated, confidential meetings where members share issues and the group helps identify and evaluate different solutions. Open to Institute for Family Business members only, Affinity Group annual membership: $750.00.

The purpose of the group is to allow members to share similar challenges that others in the group may be able to help resolve through their own experiences.

Please note the following groups:

  • The Next Generation 
    • This group is designed for adults in the family business that are part of the next generation of leadership. For more information please contact Peter Johnson at 209.946.3912.
  • Senior Generation 
    • We are currently putting this group together. If you are interested in this group please contact Peter Johnson or 209.946.3912.


“Participating in the program has validated many of my feelings and assumptions about the operation of our family business, both the positives and challenges. It has helped me to realize that we are on track, and it has helped us move onto the next step. This is a great program, one I have recommended to many family businesses.”
