Become a Sponsor

FBA’s sponsorship program is designed for individuals or businesses that are not family businesses but want to support the goals and objectives of the Association, be recognized by family businesses, and be involved in FBA activities. To ensure exclusiveness, there is only one Statewide Sponsor and one Regional Sponsor in each business or professional category (accounting firm, law firm, wealth manager, etc.).
