  3. You can learn from other people’s successes and failures.
  4. Get the latest up to the minute information for family businesses.
  5. Easy to read and effective as communication tools plus most of all to the point!
BY THE WAY, If you are not a Member why not?– for £72 a year it really is a steal!
