NYCFEC is continuing to expand its educational sessions and topics, as well as its core curriculum to address the wide range of needs for family business boards, all family members, management, shareholders, trustees and key constituencies, as well as NYCFEC Special Interest Groups.

NYCFEC members holding active passports attend free. First-time NYCFEC attendees may use code "FT051" for a discount. JOIN NYCFEC’s community of family businesses and receive a free assessment, more NYCFEC sessions for free, and join a special interest group of like peers.

Given the near-term challenges many NYC area family businesses are facing, NYCFEC would like to hear from you, as to what help you need and would like to discuss with experts via teleconferencing or interactive online sessions over the near-term. Please email your suggestions to info@nycfec.org.

Please note that NYC recently announced that eligible small businesses with less than five employees could receive a grant covering forty percent of payroll costs for two months to help retain employees. Companies with fewer than one hundred employees who can document a 25% loss in customer receipts because of the coronavirus may be eligible for interest-free loans up to $75,000.

Protecting yourself, your family, business, and all of your constituencies (ie. customers, employees, suppliers, and community) will help everyone move forward faster.
