Family Owners and Next Generation Leadership

Reconnect in person at the Family Owners and Next Generation Leadership Conference, Oct. 15-16

Family owners have a long history of connecting as a result of the common challenges and opportunities that they face. We are looking forward to meeting in person Oct. 15-16 in Colorado Springs!

Programming at the Family Owners & Next Generation Leadership Conference focuses on the familial issues of running a newspaper, as opposed to industry operational issues. Meeting topics range from management strategies, estates and trusts, community obligations, succession strategies, case studies of specific family operations, etc.

The agenda:

Friday Evening Reception/Dinner
6-9 p.m.

Saturday Conference Sessions
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

The Family Owners and Next Generation Leadership program is exclusively designed for:

  • Newspapers (dailies, weeklies and groups) owned and operated by both multi-generational families and for those that are independently owned.
  • It is ideal for those running the daily operations and their family member successors (owner CEOs and/or publishers)
  • Non-family CEOs and senior executives are invited to attend with family members.

Conversations are exclusive and highly confidential.

Details about conference sessions will be announced soon.
