BEDFORD, N.H. -- Family business leaders will get a glimpse of their future Tuesday, Feb. 29, during a forum presented by the University of New Hampshire Center for Family Business.

With a new century upon us, the Penley Forum "Build it to Last" asks, What should family-owned businesses be doing from a financial, legal and business aspect to stay ahead? A panel of highly experienced family business advisors will speak about taxes, finances and insurance during a half-day program to be held at Manchester Country Club in Bedford.

The forum will run from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and will include lunch and time for networking.

The goal of the program is to address the three most critical business issues facing family-owned businesses over the next few years. Income and estate taxes and ownership by inactive members may be among the issues discussed, as participants tailor the program to their needs.

Center for Family Business sponsors are MassMutual; Cleveland, Waters and Bass P.A.; BankBoston; and Berry, Dunn, McNeil & Parker Certified Public Accountants.

The fee for non-members is $95 per person. For more information, contact Barbara Draper at 603-862-1107.
