Moderator Steve McClure, Principal Consultant, The Family Business Consulting Group, led a conversation with directors Darcy Howe (Heatron, The Bama Companies), Jim McHugh (Southworth. The Family Business Consulting Group and Palgrave Macmillan Publishing have teamed up to provide family businesses with indispensable leadership guides and practical handbooks. The authors of these books are experts in the field, giving practical, effective, and time-tested insights.

    Important items that go to a shareholder vote include the election of a board of directors and major changes to the corporate bylaws. The board of directors elects the managers of the company and provides guidance on how the business should operate. In a family owned business, the board and management will most likely include other family members.   Individual directors and officers of a family owned business may be subject to many of the same types of claims as their counterparts at other businesses—claims by employees, disgruntled shareholders, customers, competitors and government regulators. The first line of defense for directors and officers is indemnification by the corporation.
