March 4 is the Deadline to Nominate a Northeast, Wisconsin Family Business for the Family Business First Award

Appleton, WI, FEBRUARY 29, 2016 — The Family Business First Initiative of Northeast Wisconsin is accepting nominations for the 2016 Family Business First Awards, recognizing companies and the family members who make them succeed. Winners will be announced on May 2, 2016 at the 20th Annual Wisconsin Family Business Forum Celebration.

Family businesses are the backbone of Northeast Wisconsin. Many of these businesses have a proven track record of success in terms of sales, innovation, economic impact, profits, and employment. Due to the nature of being a family business, many believe strongly in giving back to the communities in which they live. First Business designed the Family Business of the Year Awards to give proper recognition to these important businesses.
The deadline for nominations is March 4, 2016. Information on past winners and access to the nomination form may be found at:
