In November 2013, the Institute for Family Business honored family businesses within the state of Texas. Next year marks the 25th anniversary of the awards program. Baylor University's Institute for Family Business, has hosted the Texas Family Business of the Year awards program within the beautiful Barfield Drawing Room on Baylor's campus. The Texas Family Business of the Year recognizes firms whose families demonstrate a commitment to each other and to business continuity. This event draws hundreds of family business owners annually to the Baylor campus and not only recognizes and promotes outstanding family businesses but also is a valuable networking and development tool for family business honorees and undergraduate students who are invited to the afternoon family business forum and evening awards banquet. Texas Family Business of the Year firms are exceptionally responsive to the needs of their employees, communities and industries.
Through this program, the Institute for Family Business helps to fulfill its mission to provide a forum for the development and dissemination of information relevant to the health and continuity of the family business.
Announcements and deadlines for the 2014 Texas Family Business of the Year Award will be posted soon.
