The Johnson Family Business Club serves as a forum for students with an interest in privately held corporations. The club’s foundational pillars are education, recruitment and networking. The club has hosted frequent meetings and numerous campus events and a CWG (career work group) for emerging leaders in family enterprise. Among the most popular events on the schedule are the CEO speaker series. The next event will feature Johnson alumni Dwight Vicks III visiting campus on December 1 to share the story of Vicks Lithograph and Printing, a 97 year old family business in Utica, NY. The event is open to the public.
