STEP & FERC 2019 at UVM

April 23, 2019

Over the years, STEP has been proud to work closely with the Family Enterprise Research Conference (FERC) conducting STEP academic meetings in conjunction with the conference.  This year, in addition to the meeting, STEP will also sponsor a BEST PAPER AWARD at FERC and lead a PDW session at FERC.  There are many fantastic opportunities for collaboration and learning at both of these events. 

The STEP Academic Meeting in Vermont will be held on May 30, 2019 from 12-7 pm at the University of Vermont, USA.  This STEP meeting is open to all STEP members and will take place in conjunction with FERC 2019. We encourage STEP members to participate in this meeting as we focus on STEP survey data and publishing; evolving STEP membership models; STEP strategic goals. We will conclude with a networking session with FERC attendees at the close of the day. Please take a look at the STEP meeting Program for more details.

FERC 2019: STEP is proud to have STEP members Eric Clinton (DCU) and Luis Diaz Matajira (UniAndes) and Josh Daspit, serving as FERC Academic Chairs. They have informed us that FERC is shaping up great with over 62 scholars from 17 countries already registered!  STEP will sponsor a BEST PAPER AWARD at FERC and lead a PDW session titled The Case Method as a Learning Tool to Understand the Wicked Problems Facing Family Businesses at FERC.  Please note that the early registration for FERC will close on Tuesday, April 30.  To register for FERC, view the program, awards, registrants, and more, please click here.
