Building Your Business: Legacy Planning + the Next Generation
Original air date, May 14, 2020

NOMA members have thriving design and architecture firms. However, fewer NOMA member firms survive more than one or two generations. Nationally, only 30 percent of businesses make it to the second generation. Architects take pride in building things that last. Translate those skills to your firms: strong in infrastructure, robust in execution and dynamic in approach. Join NOMA member and small firm founder and owner Ibrahim Greenidge, BOLT Architecture, as he moderates a conversation about where to start on succession planning for your business. This will be a multipart series to help breakdown the process for NOMA members.

Introduction: Kimberly Dowdell, NOMA President. Moderator: Ibrahim Greenidge, BOLT Architecture. Presenters: Stacey Polk, LCR Enterprises, LLC Co-Chair and President; Charles Smith, CS Insurance Strategies CEO.
