The Kansas Family Business Forum (KFBF) is nationally recognized, highly-regarded membership organization of family business owners, their families and key employees.

The Forum is designed to provide unique learning experiences to those involved with family businesses. Events bring owners, families and managers together to address issues of ownership and management succession, strategic planning, estate planning, family dynamics and family governance. Forum programming features a mix of national and local experts on family business issues.

Additionally, the KFBF programs incorporate opportunities for smaller peer-to-peer group meetings. These include Personal Advisory Groups, which are designed to address the specific family business needs of the president, CEO or founder of the family business. Executive Breakfasts format enables in-depth roundtable discussions of issues pertinent to the membership.

KFBF is sponsored by the Center for Entrepreneurship at Wichita State University in partnership with Allen, Gibbs & Houlik, L.C.; Martin, Pringle, Oliver, Wallace & Bauer, L.L.P.; Intrust Bank, N.A. and The Wichita Business Journal.
