The annual seminar and awards luncheon, usually held in the fall, has reached out to hundreds of businesses and provided education and fact based information to thousands of participants.

Family Business Program "In the News"
In March 2005, State Farm Insurance Companies recognized Bozeman resident Robert Jaedicke for his many years of service on their Board of Directors with a gift to the MSU Jake Jabs College of Business & Entrepreneurship. The funds were placed in an endowment for the Family Business Program, providing a way to enhance the annual program and develop new outreach programs and seminars. In addition to the endowment, State Farm has provided annual funding to enhance the current program and allow growth and development of additional programs. Agents from across the state have pledged their support for the program's endowment.
In 2006, Montana Chamber of Commerce joined our team of supporters!
