Fairview Advisory Board

All Fairview tenant companies benefit from the expertise of the Center’s Advisory Board.
Next Meeting

Nov. 22 - 12:00 PM

The agenda is unavailable at this time.

These volunteers, representing diverse disciplines, are available to every tenant, as needed, to discuss strategy or simply sound out business issues. The Advisory Board is charged with making the final determination on which companies are accepted into the Center and whether or not a company’s lease is to be renewed. At least once a year, each tenant company makes a presentation to the Advisory Board on their progress and projected business plan. Advisory Board members are expected to provide constructive feedback. The Advisory Board’s regular meetings are scheduled bi-monthly (January, March, May, July, September and November) .
