|Why Support FEUSA?|
As a part of America's most prevalent business sector, you understand that family businesses have largely been isolated by their business structure. Whether it is the public's view of the family business community or the policy discussions in the halls of Congress, little attention has been paid to the value that enterprising families like yours provide to our country.
Joining Family Enterprise USA (FEUSA) is your opportunity to unite with other families and to promote the family business community as a whole. FEUSA will provide the microphone, we need you to provide the voice. Together, we will educate members of the public, the media and policymakers on the positive contributions made by family businesses in America.
The value of your tax-deductible membership in FEUSA is created in the following ways:
Knowledge is power. As a member, you will have access to educational programs and webinars throughout the year, providing you with opportunities to engage with the most respected and well-regarded business owners, scholars, and experts in the family business field.
Be heard. To the extent possible, FEUSA will maximize our advocacy efforts by working with you to create a favorable political environment, all the while building on and maintaining a positive public opinion for the family business community. Additionally, you will have a resource for obtaining and interpreting objective information in terms of policy issues.
Build a network. FEUSA will bond America's largest business sector together so that you can effectively face the issues of tomorrow not as an individual business, but as a cohesive group. By utilizing the social networking capacity of the member's only section of our website and holding yearly in-person meetings, FEUSA will provide key opportunities for your family business to connect and work collectively with others on a national scale.
Produce the evidence. FEUSA will work to accurately define America's largest business sector – family businesses – by bolstering the research available on the sector, and providing you access to published data and trends affecting the family business field.
