  • On November 10, 2016, Peter Latta, Chairman/CEO – A. Duie Pyle, addressed attendees on the topic of Succeeding at Succession Planning, sharing his keys to success and the thoughtful planning required to drive the future of his company. Family business owners and employees left feeling energized, knowing that as they look to the future – there are resources to help them every step of the way! Many thanks also to our FBA sponsors who set-up information stations around the room!

  • 'I love the chamber and especially the Chamber’s FBA. Family businesses are so unique in their special ways and being with a group of individuals that understand that and can relate is so useful and comforting.'

    'I’m so excited about the Chamber’s Family Business Alliance (FBA). I’m participating in a peer discussion group and after just one session I knew I was going to personally and professionally grow from the experience. I’m gaining a better understanding of the inherent challenges of family members working together and have already learned methods my husband and I can use to work to overcome these challenges. Ultimately I know that our employees, surrounding family and friends, our personal life and our business are all going to positively benefit from what I take away from these peer discussion group sessions.'
