A family membership unlocks a variety of benefits for you and the family members you work with:

  • Admission to four programs a year, including three education sessions and one annual symposium
  • Networking opportunities with family business owners and members, both locally and globally
  • Invitation to exclusive events at the Drucker School and Claremont Graduate University
  • Access to faculty and industry research related to family business issues and trends
  • Listing on the Drucker School Global Family Business Institute webpage, program handouts, and annual reports
  • Member-only access to the Institute’s resource library and private directory of members

Partners Program

Annual Membership Fee: $15,000

The goal of the Drucker School Global Family Business Institutes Partners Program is to provide members of the Institute with ongoing support when dealing with issues in their family-run businesses, either in person or remotely.

The Program is limited to non-competing partners who have experience working with complex and multigenerational family businesses as well as an active interest in the challenges and needs of our members. All partners agree to a “sales-free” environment so members will feel comfortable engaging with partners.

  • Partners will be recognized on all print materials, our website, at an annual symposium, and in annual reports.
  • Partners are invited to attend all events organized by the institute and will receive personal invitations to other events hosted by the Drucker School and Claremont Graduate University.
  • Partners may be invited to participate as a guest instructor for Managing the Family Business classes or speak at events/workshops depending on their industry expertise.
