April and May have been great months for membership growth and I can only put this down to the fact that the family business sector are identifying FBA as a valuable provider of resources for education and networking to assist their family business to succeed. I have been touching base with our members this month to see how we can add value to their membership, surprisingly many have asked for referrals to business advisers or services.  I am always happy to connect you with other members of the FBA community, so if you are seeking services or products please get in touch.

We are very much looking forward to the WA State Conference this Thursday 4 June. There are a great line up of speakers and sessions planned covering innovation, leadership, wealth creation, philanthropy, succession and estate planning. 

We are also increasing the complimentary services offered to our members here in WA, with the recently formed partnerships with Advocate Private Wealth and Jarman McKenna we are pleased to be able to offer initial financial planning and legal consultations as part of your membership with FBA.  Conditions apply, please contact me for more information on these valuable offerings.
