As a new addition to the New England Family Business Conference, this year we will honor the exceptional women of family businesses at a special awards breakfast dedicated solely to them!

Over the past couple of months, The Warren Group editorial board set out to find female family business professionals who demonstrate outstanding leadership and commitment both within their businesses and in the communities they serve. Nominations poured in and each was carefully reviewed. We are pleased to announce that we have selected 16 phenomenal women to receive the award!

At the awards breakfast, the winners will speak, and attendees will have the chance to celebrate and learn with the most successful professionals in the industry. The awards breakfast is open to all conference ticket holders. If you haven’t already registered for this year’s family business conference, it’s not too late - reserve your spot now!
