Facilitated by leading family business governance experts Dr. Craig Aronoff, Dr. Jennifer Pendergast, and Joe Schmieder, the Chair Forum will provide an insider’s view of the innovative and meaningful ways that family businesses build thriving governance systems. It is an opportunity for in-depth conversations with peers and experts on some of the distinct questions that face the chair of a family business board.

  • The board must include independent directors or be in the process of adding independent directors.
  • The board must consistently meet at least three times per year.

Attendance is restricted to 40 chairs and vice-chairs and is subject to approval by conference organizers. If you have any questions about the review process or forum content, please contact Kristi Daeda at 773-784-5008 or
