Quarterly Message from the President

The Power of Connection and Economic Impact

After a year that forced many of us to disconnect physically from people and processes we likely took for granted, it might seem odd that I want to celebrate connection.

But connection lies at the heart of family and private businesses. There are, of course, the familial and familiar ties that the business owners have to each other. And then there are the intimate and consequential ties that these businesses form with the communities that helped give rise to them.


In Memoriam

On February 7, 2021, the Goering Center lost its founder and friend John Goering. Those who knew him miss him terribly, and those who never met him wish they had. We are proud and bolstered to continue his legacy as tributes and fond memories pour in, and we would like to share his joy, his wisdom and his profound kidness with you as well
