FORT SMITH – If you run a family business of any size, you know that day-to-day operations can come with a different kind of challenges. With that in mind, the Fort Smith Regional Chamber of Commerce has announced they’ll hold a seminar on operating a family owned business later this month.

“Family businesses make up the majority of companies in the world.  More than 30% of large U.S. companies are family-controlled,” the Chamber said in an announcement. “They are tech companies, manufacturing, oil and everything in between. Some have become global powerhouses and household names. Wal-Mart, Gap and Ford are a few examples.  Join us on Tuesday, July 16th to learn about a few best practices that can be applied to any business, big or small.”

The seminar will cover the following topics:

  • What makes family business special?
  • What makes family business challenging?
  • Leadership & Ownership succession planning tips

This session will be presented by UAFS.
