We have a special treat (pun intended!) for our members!

On April 25, Center members and their families are invited to attend a talk and tour of the Spangler Candy Company.

The afternoon will start with Kirk Vashaw, fourth generation President & CEO, sharing his family business story. Groups will then rotate between a trolley tour to see the facilities (with tons of samples!),
and a visit to the Spangler Museum to learn how the company grew from one man with some baking powder to the world-class candy company that it is today.

Dinner will be provided at the Spangler facilities, with extra time for networking and speaking with members of the Spangler family.

This is a family-friendly event, so feel free to bring along children who will be able to participate in several fun activities.

           It begins 4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 25. Spangler Candy Company is located in Bryan, Ohio, which is approximately an hour drive from Toledo. Driving directions will be sent with your reservation confirmation.

Please register to attend online by Tuesday, April 18, 2017.

Don’t be a “dum dum” and pass up this “sweet” opportunity!



Prepare Your Business Now for Corporate Tax Reform
Tuesday, May 16, 2017

There are many unknowns when it comes to corporate tax reform: Will there be a tax cut? When will it happen? How large will it be, and what does that mean for my business?

The UT Center for Family and Privately-Held Business is bringing in the experts to make sure you are prepared. At this mini-forum, Jessica Nunn, CPA with Gilmore Jasion Mahler, will offer need-to-know information on what to expect and how to adjust your current business plan.

 Topics include:

  • Trump’s plan vs. House Republicans’ plan
  • Corporate income tax reform: tax cut vs. base “broadeners”
  • Border adjustment tax
  • Tax planning ideas

 Begin planning strategically in anticipation of the unknown!

Please register to attend -- in person or via live Webcast -- by Thursday, May 11.


This is a UT Center for Family and Privately-Held Business members-only event.
