Programs & Initiatives

Family Business Alliance

Launched in early 2015 in partnership with the Evansville Regional Economic Partnership, the goal of the Family business Alliance (FBA) is to provide resources that support and encourage the health and growth of family enterprises by providing educational events, networking, and access to industry experts.

“Family businesses are the backbone of our country. They create jobs and wealth. They support community services and not-for-profits with products, dollars, and talent and make significant contributions to our regional economy. The Family Business Alliance is the leading resource in our community for privately held and family-owned enterprises. Their events allow us to learn from successful business leaders, and peer groups provide the opportunity to share our successes, challenges, and common issues in a confidential setting.”

– Bill Theby, CEO, Lensing Wholesale
