There are no shortcuts to building and maintaining an effective board. It requires constant input from all stakeholders. But the result brings big benefits to the board and ensures the success of the company. The Private Company Governance Summit is an ideal place to advance that effort.


Produced by Family Enterprise USA partner, Family Business Magazine, the Private Company Governance Summit, now in its 12th year, is the largest conference for privately held and family business leaders and directors. Thousands of CEOs, chairs and directors have attended to develop new strategies, benchmark their own board progress and gain a fresh perspective.

This year’s sessions examine:

  • How to find great board members
  • The board’s role in CEO development
  • Best practices in board compensation
  • The most important skills for a modern board
  • The warning signs of a dysfunctional board

There’s plenty more on the agenda , including two, 2.5-hour pre-conference intensives:

  • How to get on a board
  • Board basics for those new to governance

The need for fact-based reporting of issues important to multi generational businesses and protecting a lifetime of savings has never been greater. Now more than ever, multi generational businesses and family businesses are under fire. That's why Family Enterprise USA is passionately working to increase the awareness of issues important to generationally-owned family businesses built on hard work, while continuing to strengthen our presence on Capitol Hill. The issues we fight for or against with Congress in Washington DC include high income tax rates, possible elimination of valuation discounts, increase in capital gains tax, enactment of a wealth tax, and the continued burden of the gift tax, estate tax and generation skipping tax.

Family Enterprise USA promotes generationally owned family business creation, growth, viability, and sustainability by advocating for family businesses and their lifetime of savings with Congress in Washington DC.  Since 2007, Family Enterprise USA has represented and celebrated all sizes, professions and industries of family-owned enterprises and multi-generational employers. It is a bi-partisan 501.c3 organization. Family foundations can donate.
