Board of Directors

As a non-profit organization we are governed by our Board of Directors, which is formed of family business member volunteers, affiliates and sponsors from within our general membership. It is their role to ensure that the family business community is receiving the value and support they have come to expect from our organization since 1997, and we thank each of them for their contribution.

Dave Schnarr – Executive Director

I have held the position of Executive Director on a part-time basis with the Centre for Family Business since September, 2005. It has undoubtedly been and continues to be a very enjoyable and rewarding experience. The warmth and caring displayed by our members is evident at every one of our functions. Our breakfast events bring a large group of members, sponsors, advisors, affiliates and guests together for the purpose of supporting, educating, and energizing family businesses.

Please feel free to contact me at your convenience to share your thoughts and ideas for the future prosperity of the Centre for Family Business. Articles, blog posts, book reviews, etc. are always welcomed for sharing on our website.
