WCD's Private Company and Family Business Peer Group is exclusively for WCD members serving on family business or private company boards.

WCD is pleased to launch this strategic peer group. Designed to cross WCD regions and chapters, you will have the opportunity to engage in a series of member-led, Zoom virtual peer exchanges, with a focus on small group breakouts to address increasingly complex issues.  Now more than ever, open and candid discussions within a trusted peer group are essential. 

If you are not a member, please complete the application to join.
