Can family business affinity groups — in which like members meet regularly to discuss matters of interest — make business leaders happier and more effective? That will be the topic of discussion during a Sept. 15 Cal State Fullerton Center for Family Business program.


Leading the discussion will be JoAnne Norton of the Family Business Consulting Group and interim Rick Muth Chair in Family Business at Cal State Fullerton.


Tuesday, Sept. 15
4:30 – 7 p.m.


Cal State Fullerton Irvine Campus
3 Banting Ave., Irvine 92618
(Parking is $8.)


The Center for Family Business 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. The center offers programs and workshops throughout Southern California.


The program is free for first-time family business attendees interested in becoming a center member. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 657-278-4182 or by email. Those who are not part of a family business, but interested in attending, may call 657-278-4182. Seating is limited.
