Become a Family Business Institute Member

Initial Subscription

Membership of FBI works on a subscription model with an initial three-year commitment, followed by annual renewals.

Accreditation training takes place in the first three years of membership. Subsequent years have a greater focus on marketing advisory services and the maintenance and extension of knowledge and skills through continuing education and active participation in the FBI adviser community and referral networks.

Every applicant is individually interviewed and assessed on the basis of their experience, qualifications, personality and aptitude for performing high quality collaborative family business advisory work before they can become a Family Business Institute member.

Continuing Membership

Continuing membership is at a lower annual subscription rate to reflect a reduced training commitment.

To maintain accreditation advisers are required to remain reasonably actively involved in the FBI community, in any capacity, and to undertake at least 2 days of relevant CPD each year.
