Business will hold its 10th anniversary luncheon celebration and

ways for families to manage the differences and potential conflicts.

the Whittemore School of Business and Economics, will facilitate
the program. Fink also is a faculty advisor to the Center for Family

the years. Members and sponsors who have supported the program since
the center's beginning will be honored, and all family businesses
that have been members for five years or more will be recognized.
