Professional Accreditation Registration

Membership of the Family Business Institute is restricted to individuals who undertake our Professional Accreditation Program.  To maintain exclusivity, maximise referrals during and after accreditation, and to ensure the highest possible levels of ongoing support, we will limit membership to 100 advisers in Australia and 25 in New Zealand.

On satisfactory completion of training Members will be accredited by FBI as “Family Business Solutionists” to differentiate them from other advisers in the market.

Year 1 subscriptions cover:  induction into the Institute; 12 days of intensive training;  access to all FBI materials and support systems;  personal marketing through your individual Adviser Profile Page;  participation in Network Meetings.

Subsequent year subscriptions cover:  continuing accreditation, personal mentoring support and marketing;  2 days of CPD;  participation in Network Meetings.
