The Center for Family Business, formerly known as the Family Business Council, operates within Cal State Fullerton's Mihaylo College of Business and Economics. A partnership between the university and the business community, the center offers various opportunities for family-owned businesses to learn, receive information and network. With its renaming, the center has expanded its programming and workshops into the Los Angeles area and continues its regular series in Orange County.
